I'm sorry if the process has been frustrating to you in the past.  I

Aren't we discussing a change to IndexReader, adding a new method?  This 
is not a contrib module, but a change to the core.  So proposing it as a 
patch file that changes existing classes is the normal course.  I don't 
think we ought to be in the pracice of making changes in order to 
support easier access to non-public APIs.
