They are in one of the bugs the filter depends on:

Not at all. My tradeoff between programming line length and
identifier readability is just slightly different. For me, number is
general enough to abbreviate in an identifier.

Please note the other dependency: this filter only works correctly when
documents are always scored in document number order.
This means that the bucket table of the 1.4.3 BooleanScorer can not
be used anymore, except when sorting is added.
See also the last comments I posted at that bug:
The (non ordered) bucket scoring mechanism the fastest one that is
available, anything else is slower, alhough not by much.

As for the assert statements: could you comment them out in case
the dependency on java 1.4 is not acceptable? That would
leave them useable for later.
