I like that.

Or, better yet, add a setLastModified method to Directory, and have the 
deletion code call it on the segments file when it writes a .del file. 
That makes things explicit and doesn't overload renameFile().  If 
someone calls renameFile() to do something that doesn't alter the index, 
it won't break things.  And if someone adds other, non-index, files into 
the directory, it won't break things either (as it would if we used the 
directory's last modified time).
