Thanks for the pointer. As far as I understand the patch, this doesn't 
help me, because I want to remap a newly added document so that it 
appears to be at the old position. Eventually, when the index becomes 
full of deletions, I want to optimize it, i.e. get rid of dead weight 

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but your patch replaces deleted 
documents with empty documents, which over time leads to an unchecked 
growth of the index, which is hardly equivalent to optimize() ... so, 
the main benefit I can see from your patch is that it fixes the tf / idf 
to account for deleted docs.
