This actually finally clicked.

Look, in relation to the question of proper architecture, this is a really
bad table.  BAD table no donut.  Didn't architect, can't change, as a lot of
recurring transactions come off this table.

Soooo... I'm screwed.  I've never worked on a db with this kind of flat
architecture before (which is probably why I've never seen this).  It's
retarded, like I said. ;-)

Thanks for taking the time to explain.
