    Description

      About to attach a very small patch for ScoreDocComparator which broadens the contract of compare(ScoreDoc, ScoreDoc) to follow the same semantics as java.util.Comparator.compare() – allow any integer to be returned, rather than specifically -1/0/-1.

      Note that this behaviour must already be acceptable; the anonymous ScoreDocComparators returned by FieldSortedHitQueue.comparatorStringLocale() already return the result of Collator.compare(), which is not tied to this -1/0/1 restriction.
