Add FieldCache.getTermBytes, to load term data as byte[]

                 Key: LUCENE-2380
             Project: Lucene - Java
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Michael McCandless
             Fix For: 3.1

With flex, a term is now an opaque byte[] (typically, utf8 encoded unicode string, but not
necessarily), so we need to push this up the search stack.

FieldCache now has getStrings and getStringIndex; we need corresponding methods to load terms
as native byte[], since in general they may not be representable as String.  This should be
quite a bit more RAM efficient too, for US ascii content since each character would then use
1 byte not 2.
