The ConstantScoreQuery requires java 1.4 for its skipTo() implementation,
so this will have to wait until java 1.4 is a minimum requirement for
Some time ago there was a bit of discussion on mixed boolean and
scored queries, and I think the ConstantScoreQuery is a wellcome
addition for such mixed queries.
One problem with the current score is that it is not really bound
to a maximum, so it is difficult to choose a good constant score
value in a mix.
Perhaps that aspect of scoring should be tackled in the future.
