IndexManager is an advanced-use class for controlling index locking, updating, merging, and deletion behaviors.
IndexManager and Architecture are complementary classes: Architecture is used to define traits and behaviors which cannot change for the life of an index; IndexManager is used for defining rules which may change from process to process.
my $manager = Lucy::Index::IndexManager->new( host => $hostname, # default: "" );
Create the Lock which controls access to modifying the logical content of the index.
Return an array of SegReaders representing segments that should be consolidated. Implementations must balance index-time churn against search-time degradation due to segment proliferation. The default implementation prefers small segments or segments with a high proportion of deletions.
