>                 Key: LUCENE-4609
>                 URL:
>             Project: Lucene - Core
>          Issue Type: New Feature

> Today the facets API lets you write IntEncoder/Decoder to encode/decode the category
ordinals. We have several such encoders, including VInt (default), and block encoders.
> It would be interesting to implement and benchmark a PackedIntsEncoder/Decoder, with
potentially two variants: (1) receives bitsPerValue up front, when you e.g. know that you
have a small taxonomy and the max value you can see and (2) one that decides for each doc
on the optimal bitsPerValue, writes it as a header in the byte[] or something.
