I partially take this back - the config option also lets you set the size of
the index keys to use, and that flexibility is probably still useful.
I think we don't have too much 2.4.6 users currently and if we
change clearly enough we can afford such a change. I think similar to Michael
here, let's avoid the additional config setting and make the new index format
the default. My reason for this is, that the option only really makes sense
when using old 2.3 (and 2.4.6) databases, the options is of very low values
when creating new databases, I guess. (And you would have to explicitly set
it for a new database to be able to use ordered indexes).
