A user-defined hash function; if no hash function is specified, a default hash function is used.

Because no hash function performs equally well on all possible data, the user may find that the built-in hash function performs poorly with a particular data set.

If the database already exists, HashFunction must be the same as that historically used to create the database or corruption can occur.
