That's right, Nicolas' patch makes the Lucene *store* more flexible, 
whereas my payloads patch extends the *index* data structures.

Nicolas, I'm aware of your patch but haven't looked completely at it 
yet. I think it would be a great thing if our patches would work 
together. And with Dougs suggestions (see his response) we would be on 
the right track to the flexible indexing format! I would love to work 
together with you to achieve this goal. I will look at your patch more 
closely in the next days.
