Hi all.

This is something I have been wondering for a while but can't find a
good answer by reading the code myself.

If you have a query like this:

( field:Value1 OR
field:Value2 OR
field:Value3 OR
... )

How many TermEnum / TermDocs scans should this execute?

(a) One per clause, or
(b) One for the entire boolean query?

I wonder because we do use a lot of queries of this nature, and I can't
find any direct evidence that they get logically merged, leading me to
believe that it's one per clause at present (and thus this becomes a
potential optimisation.)
