> The MoreLikeThis object performs term frequency lookups for every query.  From my testing
that's what seems to take up the majority of time for MoreLikeThis searches.  
> For some (I'd venture many) applications it's not necessary for term statistics to be
looked up every time. A fairly naive opt-in caching mechanism tied to the life of the MoreLikeThis
object would allow applications to cache term statistics for the duration that suits them.
> I've got this working in my test code. I'll put together a patch file when I get a minute.
From my testing this can improve performance by a factor of around 10.
