Subject Re: limit return results

You normally just can't break out of the HitCollector and get meaningful 
results. The problem is that you get unordered (or rather index order) 
results from a HitCollector, not ordered by score or any sort. To get the 
highest 100 docs by score, you normally need to see *all* the hits.
