I've been looking for more descriptive class names for a while. On the
htsearch side it's not bad, but the htdig Document/Retriever split was a
bit weird for me at first. This sounds fine to me.

This is also something people have asked for. I think it makes sense to do
some re-factoring of code now. Besides, it seems like ResultList would be
the appropriate place for a number of eventual optimizations, but it's too

Obviously, I'd be glad to make branches for various projects. Instead, how
about I call for a feature freeze for 3.2 in two weeks, then we'll make a
3.2 branch and this (and other questionable code) can go on the mainline.
I'd like to get a 3.2b1 release out soon. If we can draw up a quick list
of any features from 3.1.x that are currently broken in 3.2, it will make
it easier to ensure we're ready--about the only *new* feature that's
currently missing is my ExternalTransport class. I'm probably forgetting
something or other.
