> I was curious what the performance would be, because it might be useful option to use
packedints for norms if you have lots of fields and still want good scoring: 
> Today the smallest norm per-field-per-doc you can use is a single byte, and if you have
_f_ fields with norms enabled and _n_ docs, it uses _f_ * _n_ bytes of space in RAM.
> Especially if you aren't using index-time boosting (or even if you are, but not with
ridiculous values), this could be wasting a ton of RAM.
> But then I noticed there was no clean way to allow you to do this in your Similarity:
its a trivial patch.
