Hossman I think KEYWORD_ANALYZED is the ideal name for 3.x actually. I think in combination with the javadocs it would be more clear.
This still leaves the question for trunk (currently StringField):
positives are that its actually a "nice" name, concise and to the point.
another positive is that StringField omits things like positions, and in trunk we don't silently fail if you form a phrase from this.
one negative is that both StringField and TextField confusingly take String in their ctors, (I've chosen the wrong one myself before on accident).
Basically to me, this is a combination of traps. Trunk is somewhat better because it throws exceptions for positional queries if
you actually excluded positions...
in all cases in 3.x, the wrong 'configuration' here creates a situation where the user just 'does not get results' and they have
no idea why... despite the fact they used the same Analyzer at query-time and index-time like a good user. thats what I find so frustrating.
