> This patch enables a Lucene-powered concordance search capability.
> Concordances are extremely useful for linguists, lawyers and other analysts performing
analytic search vs. traditional snippeting/document retrieval tasks.  By "analytic search,"
I mean that the user wants to browse every time a term appears (or at least the topn)  in
a subset of documents and see the words before and after.  
> Concordance technology is far simpler and less interesting than IR relevance models/methods,
but it can be extremely useful for some use cases.
> Traditional concordance sort orders are available (sort on words before the target, words
after, target then words before and target then words after).
> Under the hood, this is running SpanQuery's getSpans() and reanalyzing to obtain character
offsets.  There is plenty of room for optimizations and refactoring.
> Many thanks to my colleague, Jason Robinson, for input on the design of this patch.
