David Smiley resolved LUCENE-7620.
----------------------------------
    Resolution: Fixed

Thanks for the review feedback Jim & Tim!   6.4 is going to be a great release for the
UnifiedHighlighter.  I hope features like this and other improvements this release get more
folks using the UH.

> The original Highlighter includes a {{SimpleFragmenter}} that delineates fragments (aka
Passages) by a character width.  The default is 100 characters.
> It would be great to support something similar for the UnifiedHighlighter.  It's useful
in its own right and of course it helps users transition to the UH.  I'd like to do it as
a wrapper to another BreakIterator -- perhaps a sentence one.  In this way you get back Passages
that are a number of sentences so they will look nice instead of breaking mid-way through
a sentence.  And you get some control by specifying a target number of characters.  This BreakIterator
wouldn't be a general purpose java.text.BreakIterator since it would assume it's called in
a manner exactly as the UnifiedHighlighter uses it.  It would probably be compatible with
the PostingsHighlighter too.
> I don't propose doing this by default; besides, it's easy enough to pick your BreakIterator
config.
