Subject Re: next() not called in FilterIndexReader.FilterTermDocs

Wouldn't it be easier to just make a Filter? That's what they were
intended for.

Especially, if by "certain set", you mean that these are pre-defined
values, you could create your filters at start-up time and use
CachingWrapperFilter to keep them around.

Either way, I suspect it would be much simpler.
