Solr, by default, ships in a configuration that creates filters with  
HashDocSet if the size of the set is < 3000, and BitDocSet otherwise.   
This parameter is tunable in solrconfig.xml.  You might find it helps  
to increase this slightly with 14m docs--say to 5000-6000.  In my  
testing, any higher than this is a net loss.
