      * An iterator that handles "OR" query constructs on the server side. This code has been
adapted/merged from Heap and Multi Iterators.
    + *
    + * The table structure should have the following form:
    + *
    + * <pre>
    + * row term:docId =&lt; value
    + * </pre>
    + *
    + * This Iterator will return a sorted iteration of docIDs for a given set of terms.
    + *
    + * For example, given the data and an OR'ing of "bob,steve":
    + *
    + * <pre>
    + * row1 bob:4
    + * row1 george:2
    + * row1 steve:3

    + * <pre>
    + * row1 bob:4
    + * row1 steve:3

    > I assume this was done as an optimization.
    
    No, it's the design of the iterator. It wouldn't function correctly if it returned in
non-docId sorted order.
    
    >  Since it fully implements SKVI
    
    Yes, it implements all the methods of SKVI (I mean, it wouldn't compile otherwise). The
issue is that it doesn't adhere to the runtime contract. While iterating over any SKVI, the
Keys should always be increasing in sort-order. This iterator, by design, does not do that.
