I have done some testing on distributed non-pivot faceting and found that the fine-counting
of the top-X terms can be very expensive for some queries. It seems that for fc-faceting with
Strings it is markedly faster (and non-filter-cache-blowing) to do a standard faceting call
and extract the relevant term counts for fine-counting instead of processing the requested
terms one at a time. It seems that the same principle might apply to pivot faceting.

There's a write-up with graphs at
