    Description

      Currently when IndexWriter commits, it does so with a two-phase
      commit, internally: first it prepares all the new index files, syncs
      them; then it writes a new segments_N file and syncs that, and only if
      that is successful does it remove any now un-referenced index files.

      However, these two phases are done privately, internal to the commit()
      method.

      But when Lucene is involved in a transaction with external resources
      (eg a database), it's very useful to explicitly break out the prepare
      phase from the commit phase.

      Spinoff from this thread:
