Attributes have a slightly unusual API: you can get  handle on them by 
overriding init() (still calling super.init()), and calling:

posIncAtt = tokenStream.addAttribute(PositionIncrementAttribute.class);

setting your *own* posIncAtt (just like in QueryScorer.init()) -- you 
will get the *same* instance of the attribute
