The first version of Solr didn't know about multiValued fields or not.
 The Lucene Document does not aggregate multiple values for the same
field.  Sorting was used to group the fields and detect if there were
multiple values for any of them.

Too high level for Lucene I think, and nothing is currently needed for
Lucene - a user calls doc() to get the document and then they can
modify or add fields however they want.

An interface could be useful for Solr... but getting 1.4 out the door
is top priority.
