    Description

      We offer no guarantee on the order in which an IndexSearcher will look at segments during a search operation. This can be improved for use cases where an engine using Lucene invokes early termination and uses the partially collected hits. A better model would be if we sorted segments by the estimated number of hits, thus increasing the probability of the overall relevance of the returned partial results.
