You can add a field to the schema at any time without adversely  
affecting the rest of the index. You have to restart the server, but  
you don't have to re-index existing documents. Of course, only new  
documents with that field specified will come back in queries.

You can also define dynamic fields like x_* which would let you add  
any field name you want without restarting the server.
