So this technically means if one uses DB backed (say the preferred 
embedded Derby) and Lucene index altogether, it is very unlikely that 
the repository becomes damaged, on JVM kill, right? But all through the 
site docs there are notes that the repository actually may get 
damaged... So what's in reality? Can you, please, elaborate it a bit here?
