Or look at LIMO's implementation of that feature, which to my eyes is a
little easier to read (of course that's probably because I wrote it...

(check out LimoUtils.reconstructDocument())

However, if you're doing analysis on your text to remove stopwords and
stuff like that, this WILL be lossy. I consider it more of an aid for
debugging than a way to re-index documents, though I suppose it would
work for that as well. However, I believe the process would be highly
resource intensive so I wouldn't recommend it.

The better solution is to add a stored keyword field that stores the
location of your document, and then re-index it from the source.
