[recommenders-dev] Proposal for new codesearch index

Hi Kavith,

I'm currently evaluating ideas to create more intelligent proposal rankings in code completion (see [1] for details). One idea is to create a "super fast" is subtype / is supertype search index that allows the completion engine to decide whether a proposal matches the left hand side of a assignment:

List l = new A|<^space>

should rank ArrayList on top since it is a subtype of List.

Can you imagine to build such an index (separate from the current indexing code) to evaluate whether a Lucene Index would be fast enough for such kind of queries?
