I have looked at these classes several times, including stepping through 
them and I still find them confusing.  Perhaps someone (Doug????? pretty 
please?) could illuminate us?
  I think the part I always found tricky was how it combines the 
precomputed items (idf, norms, etc.) and what the relationship is 
between the Scorers, Queries and the Weights and how they all work 
together to come up with a single score.  And, of course, there is the 
relationship to the Similarity class too... 

Perhaps we could flesh out a document that better describes scoring, 
something on par with the File Formats document
