      Description

      A user requested we add a note in IndexWriter alerting the availability of NativeFSLockFactory (allowing you to avoid retaining locks on abnormal jvm exit). Seems reasonable to me - we want users to be able to easily stumble upon this class. The below code looks like a good spot to add a note - could also improve whats there a bit - opening an IndexWriter does not necessarily create a lock file - that would depend on the LockFactory used.

        <p>Opening an <code>IndexWriter</code> creates a lock file for the directory in use. Trying to open
        another <code>IndexWriter</code> on the same directory will lead to a
        {@link LockObtainFailedException}. The {@link LockObtainFailedException}
        is also thrown if an IndexReader on the same directory is used to delete documents
        from the index.</p>

      Anyone remember why NativeFSLockFactory is not the default over SimpleFSLockFactory?
