Subject Sorting Of Index

I have been using Lucene now for about 4 years (pre Jakarta) and the

There has been a marked performance improvement when the index is sorted
in the same order I am extracting the Documents.  I do not use a Query
as some of the selections would not be easy to describe this way.

I have been doing the sort in my current code, but it takes a long time
as it involves adding the records to the end of the index (in the
correct order) and then deleting any duplicated records.

This sorting would be very useful to me, and save a fair bit of running
