=head1 NAME

KinoSearch::Search::Collector - Process hits.

=head1 SYNOPSIS

    # Abstract base class.



=head1 DESCRIPTION

A Collector decides what to do with the hits that a Matcher iterates
through, based on how the abstract collect() method is implemented.

Collectors operate on individual segments, but must operate within the
context of a larger collection.  Each time the collector moves to a new
segment, set_reader(), set_base() and set_matcher() must be called, and the
collector must take the updated information into account.
