This seems like a first level document to me.  I thought about  
putting it up on the Wiki initially so it would be easier to get  
edits done and then promote it, but in the end decided not to.  I  
think things on the Wiki get buried and ignored to some extent.   
People are always asking about scoring and the query classes and how  
to override these things, so I think that justifies it as top-level  
document in my mind.

There are no javadocs for the ones in question, I don't think.  I  
believe the ones in question are related to BooleanWeight* and  
BooleanScorer*  The ViewVC page was a compromise of not providing any
