But... doesn't this add the same amount of latency in a different
place (moves it from after the commit to before the commit)?

Seems like the total latency from when the doc is added to when it's
searchable is the same in both cases?

If the application is doing warming, it can use the same approach...
don't immediately expose the result of IW.getReader - warm it first
and have requests go against the old one in the meantime.

I like IW.getReader()... it adds functionality that one couldn't do at
the application layer.
I'm still missing what adding warming does that can't easily be done
at the application layer.  It can also result in warming of segments
that will never be used (because they will be merged again before
getReader() is called.
