Here's the plan for Lucy/KS:

  1) Design index formats that can be memory mapped rather than slurped,
     bringing the cost of opening/reopening an IndexReader down to a
     negligible level.
  2) Enable segment-centric sorted search. (LUCENE-1483) 
  3) Implement tombstone-based deletions, so that the cost of deleting
     documents scales with the number of deletions rather than the size of the
  4) Allow 2 concurrent writers: one for small, fast updates, and one for
     big background merges.
