> For backwards compatibility we must leave the default MergePolicy as
> selecting contiguous merges.  This is necessary because some
> applications rely on "temporal monotonicity" of doc IDs, which means
> even though merges can re-number documents, the renumbering will
> always reflect the order in which the documents were added to the
> index.
> Still, for those apps that do not rely on this, we should offer a
> MergePolicy that is free to select the best merges regardless of
> whether they are continuguous.  This requires fixing IndexWriter to
> accept such a merge, and, fixing LogMergePolicy to optionally allow
> it the freedom to do so.
