> This effort started with the patch on LUCENE-4556, to create a "light
> weight" replacement for the current object-heavy Automaton class
> (which creates separate State and Transition objects).
> I took that initial patch much further, and cutover most places in
> Lucene that use Automaton to LightAutomaton.  Tests pass.
> The core idea of LightAutomaton is all states are ints, and you build
> up the automaton under the restriction that you add all outgoing
> transitions one state at a time.  This worked well for most
> operations, but for some (e.g. UTF32ToUTF8!!) it was harder, so I also
> added a separate builder to add transitions in any order and then in
> the end they are sorted and added to the real automaton.
> If this is successful I think we should just replace the current
> Automaton with LightAutomaton; right now they both exist in my current
> patch...
> This is very much a work in progress, and I'm not sure the
> restrictions the API imposes are "reasonable" (some algos got uglier).
> But I think it's at least worth exploring/iterating... I'll make a branch and
> commit my current state.
