Well, this will change your scores?  MultiReader will sum up all term
statistics across all SegmentReaders "up front", and then scoring per
segment will use those top-level weights.

Which addIndexes method are you using?  The one taking Directory[]
does file-level copies, assigning sequential segment names (but this
is not guaranteed), and the one taking IndexReader[] merges all the
incoming indices into a single segment.

You may need to just impl a custom MergePolicy that sorts all segments
in the index by timestamp and picks the merge order accordingly...
