> Lucene handles backwards-compatibility of its data structures by
> converting them from the old into the new formats during segment
> merging.
> Payloads are simply byte arrays in which users can store arbitrary
> data. Applications that use payloads might want to convert the format
> of their payloads in a similar fashion. Otherwise it's not easily
> possible to ever change the encoding of a payload without reindexing.
> So I propose to introduce a PayloadMerger class that the SegmentMerger
> invokes to merge the payloads from multiple segments. Users can then
> implement their own PayloadMerger to convert payloads from an old into
> a new format.
> In the future we need this kind of flexibility also for column-stride
> fields (LUCENE-1231) and flexible indexing codecs.
> In addition to that it would be nice if users could store version
> information in the segments file. E.g. they could store "in segment _2
> the term a:b uses payloads of format x.y".
