In my opinion, BytesRef should be comparable, with the default being
'natural' (unsigned/codepoint order).
And you can still specify a crazy comparator in your codec, but not all
things would work (its an expert customization)

I mean, things like automaton won't work if you change the sort order to
something wacky anyway... so theres nothing strange about Solr's
BoundedTreeSet not using a custom codec comparator?
