> Enable flexible scoring

>             Project: Lucene - Java
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Search

> This is a first step (nowhere near committable!), implementing the
> design iterated to in the recent "Baby steps towards making Lucene's
> scoring more flexible" java-dev thread.
> The idea is (if you turn it on for your Field; it's off by default) to
> store full stats in the index, into a new _X.sts file, per doc (X
> field) in the index.
> And then have FieldSimilarityProvider impls that compute doc's boost
> bytes (norms) from these stats.
> The patch is able to index the stats, merge them when segments are
> merged, and provides an iterator-only API.  It also has starting point
> for per-field Sims that use the stats iterator API to compute boost
> bytes.  But it's not at all tied into actual searching!  There's still
> tons left to do, eg, how does one configure via Field/FieldType which
> stats one wants indexed.
> All tests pass, and I added one new TestStats unit test.
> The stats I record now are:
>   - field's boost
>   - field's unique term count (a b c a a b --> 3)
>   - field's total term count (a b c a a b --> 6)
>   - total term count per-term (sum of total term count for all docs
>     that have this term)
> Still need at least the total term count for each field.
