If you need to repeat an integer as a column name, add entropy and use a
BytesType column.  Pack your integer in big endian format, and append
another random packed integer.  When you slice the columns, only unpack the
first 8 bytes.  You still get the desired sorting this way, though on
repeats it will sort by the random portion.
