Subject Re: CheckIndex tool

This sounds good!  I like the idea of checking the index when Solr has  
to force release the write.lock.

The one caveat is, when checking a large index (which can take quite  
some time), it'd be nice to have the equivalent of the inline'd  
out.print/ln calls happen in realtime so that you can see (on the  
command line output) that progress is being made, which segment is  
being checked, etc.?

Maybe change it to an optional "infoStream" (like IndexWriter), and  
then the current inlined prints become calls to message() which checks  
if infoStream is non-null?
