If I have a field in my model like;
field = models.CharField(max_length=4, unique=True, db_index=True)
function sql_indexes_for_field from db/backends/creation.py will silently ignore creation the index for that field.
I think it show be created or, at least, give a message that it will not be created and some reason.
To create an index for such a field I have to remove "unique=True", create
the index whith "python manage.py sqlindexes <app>" and after add again "unique=True", so django admin captures
non unique entries. I am using sqlite.
