> Now, I guess the point of this is so that we can search for HTML documents using Lucene's
range search syntax. But as far as I can tell, the result of DateField.timeToString(f.lastModified())
returns a non-human readable date format, hence the modified field will not really be "human
searchable" format. Is this an oversight in the example implementation, or am I just missing
something else here?

I always thought that this is necessary for being able to incrementally 
update the index at some later stage, but I am not sure to be honest.
