I agree with Hoss here. IMO allowing docs out of order is a big
API change. I think if people switch to 2.2 they just want it
to work as before without having to add special settings. If
they need better performance for certain types of queries and
they know that their application can deal with docs out of order
they can enable the faster scoring.
So my vote is +1 for docs in order by default.

That'd be helpful. However, I'm currently working on some other
issues. Maybe you or others would have some time to run those
