Subject Re: sentence number in WordToken

if you do many selectCovering calls, you may be faster using
indexCovering once and then using the lookup index it produces.

IMHO type systems should not contain information that can easily
be calculated at runtime (e.g. sentence number, token number, etc.).

Mind, I have no say here ;) Just my personal opinion.
