Not always. I still argue that per segment searching was a valid change 
that was backwards compatible - but it broke Solr because Solr ignores 
MultiSearcher and went on the assumption that a single Searcher had 
access to the entire index. That's somewhat against the design of 
Lucene, which doesn't (and can't) make such assumptions.
