I'm talking about _existing_ code... i.e. if someone already has:

public class CrazyAnalyzer ... {
	public int getPositionIncrementGap(String field) {
	  return random.nextInt(100);

then my change (making gPIG(String) protected) won't break it. It will 
also continue to behave as expected due to the default impl of 
gPIG(String, int).

Presumably people who are implementing new analyzers after this would 
make it protected, but it won't break back-compat of existing public
