Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-328) Some utilities for a compact sparse filter

paul.elschot commented on LUCENE-328:

Starting from SkipFilter1.patch as above, a replacement of Filter by SkipFilter in the various
(Searcher, Searchable and implementors) is straightforward. The only thing further needed
is a 
checked cast to Filter in, filter, hitcollector) for the case
the DocNrSkipper is null. (When that cast to Filter fails an IllegalArgumentException can
be thrown).
After that, all tests pass again, with and without the test code in Filter to always use a

That means that it is easier than expected to replace Filter by SkipFilter altogether.
