Well, I take that back. Running more rigorous tests with Apache
Bench shows a difference of slightly over a factor of 2 between the
median search time on the numeric field, and on the text field. The
search on the numeric field is, of course, faster. That much
of a difference puzzles me. Would someone knowledgeable about
Lucene indexes care to comment?
