I think disable_cost was originally set at a time when costs were
integers :-(.  Yeah, there's probably no reason not to throw another
zero or two on it.

Is there another issue here besides that one?  I think you were hoping
that the hash join would be faster than the alternatives, but the cost
estimate says it's a lot slower.  Is that actually the case?
