One solution is to store it.  :)   Field.Text(String,Reader) does not  
store though, only Field.Text(String,String).  So you will need to  
load it as a String first to do that.  An alternative is to grab the  
contents from its original location when you need the positions and  
re-run the Analyzer on the text to get the Tokens with position  
information.  There is also some enhancements in the trunk  
(unreleased) version of Lucene you may try to store offset and  
position information in the index.
