> I propose adding a new SortableTextField subclass that would functionally work the same
as TextField except:
> * {{docValues="true|false"}} could be configured, with the default being "true"
> * The docValues would contain the original input values (just like StrField) for sorting
(or faceting)
> ** By default, to protect users from excessively large docValues, only the first 1024
of each field value would be used -- but this could be overridden with configuration.
> ----
> Consider the following sample configuration:
> {code}
> <field name="title" type="text_sortable" docValues="true"
>        indexed="true" docValues="true" stored="true" multiValued="false"/>
> <fieldType name="text_sortable" class="solr.SortableTextField">
>   <analyzer type="index">
>    ...
>   </analyzer>
>   <analyzer type="query">
>    ...
>   </analyzer>
> </fieldType>
> {code}
> Given a document with a title of "Solr In Action"
> Users could:
> * Search for individual (indexed) terms in the "title" field: {{q=title:solr}}
> * Sort documents by title ( {{sort=title asc}} ) such that this document's sort value
would be "Solr In Action"
> If another document had a "title" value that was longer then 1024 chars, then the docValues
would be built using only the first 1024 characters of the value (unless the user modified
the configuration) 
> This would be functionally equivalent to the following existing configuration - including
the on disk index segments - except that the on disk DocValues would refer directly to the
"title" field, reducing the total number of "field infos" in the index (which has a small
impact on segment housekeeping and merge times) and end users would not need to sort on an
alternate "title_string" field name - the original "title" field name would always be used
> {code}
> <field name="title" type="text"
>        indexed="true" docValues="true" stored="true" multiValued="false"/>
> <field name="title_string" type="string"
>        indexed="false" docValues="true" stored="false" multiValued="false"/>
> <copyField source="title" dest="title_string" maxChars="1024" />
> {code}
