 sounds like a great idea.

> I think having a way to "slightly optimize" your index would be useful
> for many applications.
> The current optimize() call is very expensive for large indices
> because it always optimizes fully down to 1 segment.  If we add a new
> method which instead is allowed to stop optimizing once it has <=
> maxNumSegments segments in the index, this would allow applications to
> eg optimize down to say <= 10 segments after doing a bunch of updates.
> This should be a nice compromise of gaining good speedups of searching
> while not spending the full (and typically very high) cost of
> optimizing down to a single segment.
> Since LUCENE-847 is now formalizing an API for decoupling merge policy
> from IndexWriter, if we want to add this new optimize method we need
> to take it into account in LUCENE-847.
