> MergeScheduler implements Closeable and IndexWriter calls ms.close() when it's closed.
But MergeScheduler can be shared between several writers, which means closing it by any particular
writer is wrong. We should rather implement some ref-counting logic such that each IW will
call incRef() in the ctor, and decRef() on close(), and MergeScheduler will truly close when
the ref-count hits 0.

terminating, I doubt if it really works.
> Also, when I look at ConcurrentMergeScheduler.close(), it calls sync() which joins all
MergeThreads. But if that CMS instance is shared between few IWs, doesn't it mean that a single
IW calling close() waits on MergeThreads that execute merges of other IWs!?!? This seems ...
