Don't create compound file for large segments by default

                 Key: LUCENE-2773
             Project: Lucene - Java
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Index
            Reporter: Michael McCandless
            Assignee: Michael McCandless
             Fix For: 3.1, 4.0

some added time during indexing to build, and also ties up temporary
disk space, causing eg a large spike on the final merge of an

Since MergePolicy dictates which segments should be CFS, we can
change it to only build CFS for "smallish" merges.

I think we should also set a maxMergeMB by default so that very large
merges aren't done.
