Subject Re: A codec moment or pickle

Let me lay out the scenario.

Hardware has .5T of Index is relatively small. Application profiling
shows a significant amount of time spent codec-ing.

Options as I see them:

1. Use DPF complete with the irritation of having to have this
spurious codec name in the on-disk format that has nothing to do with
the on-disk format.
2. 'Officially' use the standard codec, and then use something like
AOP to intercept and encapsulate it with the DPF or something else
like it -- essentially, a do-it-myself alternative to convincing the
community here that this is a use case worthy of support.
3. Find some way to move a significant amount of the data in question
out of Lucene altogether into something else which fits nicely
together with filling memory with a cache so that the amount of
codeccing drops below the threshold of interest.
