In my thinking, this would only be called for documents that are explicitly
requested with Hits.doc().  I was not thinking that distributed search would
support the "low-level" interface, but just the Hits interface.  For each
search, two calls would be made per remote index, one to get query term
statistics, and one to get the top-scoring document numbers and scores.
These can be merged, and then only the globally top-scoring document objects
need be retrieved, as they are displayed.
