> As a user, I'd like to associate a “foreign key” with a string (rather: final node)
in the suggester index (in addition to the rank). For example, I’d like to add “Lucene
in Action” with key 1933988177 (the ISBN) and some rank to a WFST or AnalyzingSuggester.
A completion would return the completed string and the key associated with each entry (i.e.
final nodes get a “key” field (int), which is returned in the LookupResult). That foreign
key could also be used for fast de-duping (no more string/byte array comparisons).
> There may be workarounds for the “foreign key” use case –it seems that lots of
data structures would be affected by storing a user-provided key with final nodes, which therefore
may not be a viable path. It may be possible to encode the foreign key in the transducer’s
output instead.
> *Discussion on java-user@lucene:*
> Mike McCandless: 
> This is maybe the same idea as
> LUCENE-4491 ?  Could you simply stuff your ISBN onto the end of the suggestion (ie enroll
Lucene in
> Action|1933988177)?
> Dawid Weiss:
> Just remember that if your suffixes are unique then you'll be expanding the automaton
quite a bit (unique suffix paths).

> Mike:
> That's a good point... encoding into the FST's output may be better.
