Erick Erickson commented on LUCENE-4369:
----------------------------------------

Shai:

bq: ...I don't think we should underestimate Lucene users to the point that they don't understand
what an Analyzer...

I absolutely agree with you about _Lucene_ users, but I disagree when we're talking about
_Solr_ users who are just using the schema.xml file. I flat guarantee that they don't always
look under the covers. I've seen way more than one site with "solr rocks" as the first/newSearchers.....

But all that said, I'm not doing the work so whatever gets chosen is fine with me.

> There's a huge difference between TextField and StringField, StringField screws up scoring
and bypasses your Analyzer.
> (see java-user thread "Custom Analyzer Not Called When Indexing" as an example.)
> The name we use here is vital, otherwise people will get bad results.
> I think we should rename StringField to MatchOnlyField.
