Yeah, and all the tests I did in LUCENE-1483 were either TermQuery or
AllDocsQuery so LUCENE-1596 shouldn't have helped.

Ditching MultiTermDocs just means saving one method call, and also
saving having to do 2nd pass on each bulk-read of docs/freqs adding in
the base to the docs.  Maybe that 2nd pass was a big part of the gain.
