> I'm not aware of any research papers about picking multipliers in this context, but would love to see one.

The only real condition that I can think of is that the order should be large: we do not want MULTIPLIER**n = 1 (mod 2**N) for a small number n.

Other than that, we could pick the multiplier to guarantee no hash collisions on some chosen subset of inputs. A bit like your product(range(100), repeat=4) example but then for more inputs.

If you agree with this approach, I could try to find a good multiplier this way.
