In the interim, since you're using Bucardo, presumably you have
multiple database hosts.  If they're in a multi-master (i.e., both
writeable) configuration, and have full (or full enough) replicas of
your data, you could direct all traffic to one, REINDEX the other,
reverse them, REINDEX the first, and then allow traffic to both again.
 I've no idea whether that's at all viable given your environment, but
we use a similar technique to manage schema migrations, hardware
maintenance, and the like.

Regardless, for that and many other reasons, B5 is definitely a big improvement.
