Grant, 
Is that on a single machine? If so, what kind of hardware specs does the machine have? I guess
you're using a 64-bit JVM?

A slightly unrelated question: if a query matches all the documents in the index, does that
cause the entire index to get loaded into RAM ?

I just indexed a collection w/ 15+ million docs in one index.  Index  
size is roughly 42 gb.
