Does the LUCENE-1536 patch create a compound filter out of multiple filters?  Then the compound filter is passed down to TermQuery?  What is the status of LUCENE-1345?

I don't think anyone is working on it..., because It looks like this is a real hit to performance (the results I posted on LUCENE-1476).  We shouldn't do it.

And, in fact, we should consider doing the reverse: taking filters that are now applied via iteration and instead distributing them down to each TermQuery (LUCENE-1536) via random-access API (if the filter can support it); that can give much better performance.

However I need to redo these tests once LUCENE-1345 is in.
