Looks good!  A couple of things:

- I'm tempted to ditch the case normalization feature of keyword indexes.  This
is actually the application's job; there's no guarantee that values that are
passed by the app will be strings.  I'm not sure that anyone has actually used
keyword indexes, as their results could not until now be intersected with the
results from any other index so there don't appear to be any backwards
compatibility goals to service here (KeywordIndexes appeared to be abandonware
until we paid attention to them).

- Likewise, I don't think there are are any consumers of topicindexes, for the
same reasons, so the "read on write" upgrade in FilteredSetBase should probably
go.  Users that have pickles around which are still IISets can do a migration.
