Since the hashtable doesn't expose the internal hashing to the user of the
hashtable it would require adding a new interface to deal with in.

I don't feel that a whole new interface to optimize out something which is very
cheap (one multiplication + shift) in this case, I'd rather avoid having a new
interface.

Is it ok with you if I leave it as is in the next version of the patch?
