Is TermsComponent really that good for AutoComplete?
Have a look at - doesn't use TC.

As in, you want each suggestion include the number of documents it would match if that suggestion
would be run as the query?
Wouldn't that require one to execute that query, so if you want to show 10 suggestions, you'd
hit Solr 10 times?

Can you give an example?

Sematext -- -- Solr - Lucene - Nutch
