Alrighty, the results are in (numbers are objects in bucket):

For the 0...10000 range:

Average: 78.125
Std dev: 1.4197704151
Min: 75
Max: 80

For the 1...100 range:

Average: 0.78125
Std dev: 0.5164613088
Min: 0
Max: 2

For the 1000...1100 range:

Average: 0.7890625
Std dev: 0.4964812206
Min: 0
Max: 2

Looks like hash_32 is pretty good with small numbers.
