> Colleagues,
> When we filter we don’t care any of scoring factors i.e. norms, positions, tf, but
it should be fast. The obvious way to handle this is to decode postings list and cache it
in heap (CachingWrappingFilter, Solr’s DocSet). Both of consuming a heap and decoding as
well are expensive. 
> Let’s write a posting list as a bitset, if df is greater than segment's maxdocs/8 
(what about skiplists? and overall performance?). 
> Beside of the codec implementation, the trickiest part to me is to design API for this.
How we can let the app know that a term query don’t need to be cached in heap, but can be
held as an mmaped bitset?
> WDYT?
