Subject FuzzyQuery vs SlowFuzsyQuery docs? -- was: Re: [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-2667) Fix FuzzyQuery's defaults, so its fast.

Is there any reason why SlowFuzzyQuery shouldn't be in the class level 
javadocs for FuzzyQuery ?

: Hi Francisco: The core FuzzyQuery does not support edit distances > 2, 
: because the automatons used for this would be too big and slow. If you 
: really want distances > 2, use 

: from the sandbox module (lucene-sandbox.jar). This one is the same 
: algorithm as the old 3.x FuzzyQuery (and is as slow).
