> BlockTree is our default terms dictionary today, but it doesn't
> support term ords, which is an optional API in the postings format to
> retrieve the ordinal for the currently seek'd term, and also later
> seek by that ordinal e.g. to lookup the term.
> This can possibly be useful for e.g. faceting, and maybe at some point
> we can share the postings terms dict with the one used by sorted/set
> DV for cases when app wants to invert and facet on a given field.
> The older (3.x) block terms dict can easily support ords, and we have
> a Lucene41OrdsPF in test-framework, but it's not as fast / compact as
> block-tree, and doesn't (can't easily) implement an optimized
> intersect, but it could be for fields we'd want to facet on, these
> tradeoffs don't matter.  It's nice to have options...
