I'd like to make the following high-level changes to the indexing API:
- Add support for indexing documents corresponding to unsaved editor buffers.
- Make FactBase no longer a singleton.
- Make Indexer no longer a singleton. Each Indexer instance talks to a given FactBase. This permits multiple
languages' worth of indexes to each have their own FactBase, rather than their facts all being comingled.
- Remove IndexManager, which was just a facade class to wrap accessing the singleton Indexer instance.
- Remove the FactBase argument from IFactGenerator, and have its generate(...) method return an IValue, so that
generators just generate, and the framework takes care of writing to the FactBase.
