      Description

      This is phase 3, follow-on from LUCENE-6852, to add dimensional values
      support to Lucene, so we can index large "numeric" values like
      BigInteger, BigDecimal, IPv6, and multi-dimensional things like 2d and
      3d geo.

      I created a new Lucene60Codec, implemented DimensionalFormat for it,
      and a new FieldInfosFormat (to write/read the dimension settings for
      each field), and moved Lucene54Codec to backwards-codecs.

      I also fixed CheckIndex to do basic testing of the dimensional
      values.
