It looks reasonable to me.

As for names, IndexWriter would be a good one for this, and 
IndexAppender would be a better name for what's now called IndexWriter. 
  Unfortunately, I don't see a way to make that change back-compatibly.

So perhaps this could be called IndexModifier.

We could still rename IndexWriter to IndexAppender and add a deprecated 
subclass named IndexWriter for back-compatibility.  Would that work?  Is 
it worth it?
