Michael McCandless commented on LUCENE-1313:

The SR should then be able to open the docstore file
cleanly regardless of the open IndexOutput adding more to the
file for the next rambuf segment?
{quote}

That's the crucial question: can we open a new IndexInput, while an IndexOutput is still writing
to the file?  I vaguely remember being surprised that this worked fine on Windows, but I'm
not sure.

If that's fine across all OS's, then, yes we could avoid closing the docStores when flushing
a new segment.

If it's not fine, then we'd need a way to make an IndexOutputInput, which is a bigger change.

We also should [separately] consider having multiple SegmentReaders that share the same docStores,
share a single set of IndexInputs (cloned).  Ie if the RAM MergePolicy allows many segments
in RAM at once, we are still opening real file descriptors to read the doc stores, so without
such sharing we could start running out of descriptors.

> Enable near realtime search in Lucene without external
> dependencies. When RAM NRT is enabled, the implementation adds a
> RAMDirectory to IndexWriter. Flushes go to the ramdir unless
> there is no available space. Merges are completed in the ram
> dir until there is no more available ram. 
> IW.optimize and IW.commit flush the ramdir to the primary
> directory, all other operations try to keep segments in ram
> until there is no more space.
