      Description

      I think for 4.0 we should have a deprecated transition api for Field so you can do new Field(..., Field.Store.xxx, Field.Index.yyy) like before.

      These combinations would just be some predefined fieldtypes that are used behind the scenes if you use these deprecated ctors

      Sure it wouldn't be 'totally' backwards binary compat for Field.java, but why must it be all or nothing? I think this would eliminate a big
      hurdle for people that want to check out 4.x
