      Description

      Currently the BlendedInfixSuggester return a (long) score to rank the suggestions.
      This score is calculated as a multiplication between :

      long Weight : the suggestion weight, coming from a document field, it can be any long value ( including 1, 0,.. )

      double Coefficient : 0<=x<=1, calculated based on the position match, earlier the better

      The resulting score is a long, which means that at the moment, any weight<10 can bring inconsistencies.

      Edge cases 
      Weight =1
      Score = 1( if we have a match at the beginning of the suggestion) or 0 ( for any other match)

      Weight =0
      Score = 0 ( independently of the position match coefficient)
