One gotcha is that support for DocValuesFormat="Disk" was removed in Solr 4.9, so it simply
can't open an index using that format. Fortunately it can be handled by changing format in
the schema and performing an optimize using the old Solr version.

How the performance/memory-trade-off of the Disk-format falls under "critical bug" and thus
is reason enough to break backwards compatibility, I don't know.
