I didn't mean to imply that I would not use an index to enforce a
unique constraint in production.  For my use case, there are few
inserts going on, so I don't expect the overhead of enforcing the
unique constraint to be a big problem.

Note that, although this is a "manual" process in neo4j, there is a
need for both an index and also checking the index when inserting
(either implicit or explicit, depending on the engine) into an RBDMS
as well.
