Final form of the un-inverted field:
Each document points to a list of term numbers that are contained in that document.
Term numbers are in sorted order, and are encoded as variable-length deltas from the
previous term number. Real term numbers start at 2 since 0 and 1 are reserved. A
term number of 0 signals the end of the termNumber list.
There is a single int[maxDoc()] which either contains a pointer into a byte for
the termNumber lists, or directly contains the termNumber list if it fits in the 4
bytes of an integer. If the first byte in the integer is 1, the next 3 bytes
are a pointer into a byte where the termNumber list starts.
There are actually 256 byte arrays, to compensate for the fact that the pointers
into the byte arrays are only 3 bytes long. The correct byte array for a document
is a function of it's id.
To save space and speed up faceting, any term that matches enough documents will
not be un-inverted... it will be skipped while building the un-inverted field structure,
and will use a set intersection method during faceting.
To further save memory, the terms (the actual string values) are not all stored in
memory, but a TermIndex is used to convert term numbers to term values only
for the terms needed after faceting has completed. Only every 128th term value
is stored, along with it's corresponding term number, and this is used as an
index to find the closest term and iterate until the desired number is hit (very
much like Lucene's own internal term index).
