    Description

      The following in PhraseQuery has been here since Sept 15th 2004 (by "goller"):

          /**
           * Adds a term to the end of the query phrase.
           * The relative position of the term within the phrase is specified explicitly.
           * This allows e.g. phrases with more than one term at the same position
           * or phrases with gaps (e.g. in connection with stopwords).
           * 
           */
          public Builder add(Term term, int position) {
      

      Of course this isn't true; it's why we have MultiPhraseQuery. Yet we even allow you to have consecutive terms with the same positions. We shouldn't allow that; we should throw an exception. For my own sanity, I modified a simple MultiPhraseQuery test to use PhraseQuery instead and of course it didn't work.
