I think there could be some other optimization with the SearchBean if added
to the core in how it builds its cache. Currently it looks like the
SearchBean will create the entire document once per sorted field needed from
the document, this could be changed. Also, if you only need one field from
the doc it would be nice if you only read that one field from the index
instead of building the entire document and than selecting out the one field
