It does.  There isn't a real performance difference between
LOAD_AND_BREAK and my getField thing, except it'll create two extra
objects (Vector & Document).  Probably not that big a deal since the
bigger issue was the IO in reading the rest of the document.

Close mine out.

> If you just want to retrieve a single field from a Document, the only way to do it is
to retrieve all the fields from the Document and then search it.  This patch is an optimization
that allows you retrieve a specific field from a document without instantiating a lot of field
and string objects.  This reduces our memory consumption on a per query basis by around around
20% when a lot of documents are returned.
> I've added a lot of comments saying you should only call it if you only ever need one
field.  There's also a unit test.
