Disallow setBoost() on StringField, throw exception if boosts are set if norms are omitted
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: LUCENE-3796
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-3796
             Project: Lucene - Java
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Robert Muir
            Priority: Blocker
             Fix For: 4.0


Occasionally users are confused why index-time boosts are not applied to their norms-omitted
fields.

This is because we silently discard the boost: there is no reason for this!

The most absurd part: in 4.0 you can make a StringField and call setBoost and nothing complains...
(more reasons to remove StringField totally in my opinion)
