Subject RE: optimized reopen?

I was pretty sure reopen() would need to return a new IndexReader instance,
because otherwise the 'indices never change' paradigm would break, but it
would seem that I could share the existing SegmentReaders with the new

Why do you think the SegmentReaders cannot be shared?

Things are cached using an IndexReader as the key, so you would have
to be careful not to break the current behaviour (that an
IndexReader's view of an index doesn't change - deletes from that
specific reader aside).

Maybe you could invoke reopen() on an existing IndexReader and it
would return a new IndexReader that shares sub-readers that haven't
changed?  But I don't think that sub-readers can be shared like this
right now... the difficulty may lie in deleted-docs.
