Yes I was thinking about this too. I'm just not sure if this is
confusing for the users, because it will be conceptually different how
to retrieve "normal" stored fields vs. "column-stored" fields. The
former via getDocument() (multiple field values at a time), but the
latter via an Iterator similar to TermDocs (one value at a time).
Do you think this would be confusing? Or do you have other ideas for the
retrieval API?
