David Smiley commented on LUCENE-8229:
--------------------------------------

I'm excited about this too :-)

I made some small tweaks, such as adding lucene.experimental annotations (at 
least until 8.0), and using java 8 streams in one place.  What do you think?

> Add a method to Weight to retrieve matches for a single document

> The ability to find out exactly what a query has matched on is a fairly 
> frequent feature request, and would also make highlighters much easier to 
> implement.  There have been a few attempts at doing this, including adding 
> positions to Scorers, or re-writing queries as Spans, but these all either 
> compromise general performance or involve up-front knowledge of all queries.
> Instead, I propose adding a method to Weight that exposes an iterator over 
> matches in a particular document and field.  It should be used in a similar 
> manner to explain() - ie, just for TopDocs, not as part of the scoring loop, 
> which relieves some of the pressure on performance.
