Thanks for feeback Uwe.
I'll not be looking at this until again tomorrow so at least this gives me
time to think it through.

thin wrapper around IndexReader, so you are responsible to open/close the
IndexReader, IndexSearcher no longer does this.

IndexReader open as long as possible as it is very expensive to open/close
