It's not a hack, it is supporting a feature.
And I don't think the new code will obsolete it, if the index contains
complete nonsense the new code will still try to use it for seeking
(and I am not sure that the index is not used for more than only
seeking even with the new code).
Or the really short variant: If an index is optional there's no good
reason to not allow completely disabling it, at least when it's
only one line of code.
