> It would be useful if the method =Filter.bits()= returned an abstract interface, instead
of =java.util.BitSet=.
> Use case: there is a very large index, and, depending on the user's privileges, only
a small portion of the index is actually visible.
> Sparsely populated =java.util.BitSet=s are not efficient and waste lots of memory. It
would be desirable to have an alternative BitSet implementation with smaller memory footprint.
> Though it _is_ possibly to derive classes from =java.util.BitSet=, it was obviously not
designed for that purpose.
> That's why I propose to use an interface instead. The default implementation could still
delegate to =java.util.BitSet=.
