Yeah, that's how I was originally doing it, but I decided to just get
it working so I could play around with it first. I was thinking of
allowing a list of docids as well, but I wasn't sure what to do in the
case when somebody passed in both. I guess it should probably be just
one or the other.

I expected that nobody would want to apply the patch without first
seeing some tests and seeing how the interaction with Count,
SkipCount, etc. would work. I've not had time to do any sort of
extensive testing, but I tried out Count, and it seems to work as
expected. I'll write up some unit tests when I get the chance in the
next day or so and then submit a patch with both those and these

Does anyone have any thoughts on allowing multi-docid requests?
