It's complicated...
- SortedIntSet would be about 44% smaller on average
- random lookups would be significantly slower (but it's unclear how
many random lookups need to be done)
- intersection of 2 SortedIntSets of near equal size should be slightly faster
- intersection of 2 SortedIntSets of different sizes will be slower
- intersection of a SortedIntSet with a BitSet will be slightly faster
- intersection of a small uncached int list with a large SortedIntSet
will be slower (think facet.enum.cache.minDf)

Anyway, this is just something to keep in mind...  there are bigger
fish to fry right now.
