    Description

      While it's possible to search for fields that don't exist (you'll get 0 hits),
      you'll get an exception if you try to sort by a field that has no values. The
      exception is this:

      if (termEnum.term() == null) {
      throw new RuntimeException ("no terms in field " + field);
      }

      I'll attach a change suggested by Yonik Seeley that removes this exception.

      Also, the if-condition above is incomplete anyway, so currently the exception
      is not always thrown (as termEnum .term() might well be != null but point to a
      term in a different field already)
