> Calculation of lengthNorm factor should in some cases take into account the number of
tokens with positionIncrement=0. This should be made optional, to support two different scenarios:
> * when analyzers insert artificially constructed tokens into TokenStream (e.g. ASCII-fied
versions of accented terms, stemmed terms), and it's unlikely that users submit queries containing
both versions of tokens: in this case lengthNorm calculation should ignore the tokens with
positionIncrement=0.
> * when analyzers insert synonyms, and it's likely that users may submit queries that
contain multiple synonymous terms: in this case the lengthNorm should be calculated as it
is now, i.e. it should take into account all terms no matter what is their positionIncrement.
> The default should be backward-compatible, i.e. it should count all tokens.
