Praveen Peddi (or anyone else), did you ever try the patch?  I would be
interested to know what sort of performance difference it makes.

I have been trying to create a "most-simple" solution to indexing and

their regular terms.  If the field is not tokenised then a sort term
might not be necessary so the sort engine performs as normal, but if the
field is tokenised then the engine could use this defined sort term,
thus allowing all terms to be kept together in the one field.

I don't know what the technical implications of this is though.  Just a
