    // Sort the array the first time...
    // We don't need to sort the array in any future calls because we know
    // it will already start off sorted (all scorers on same doc).
    // Note that this comparator is not consistent with equals!
    // Also we use mergeSort here to be stable (so order of Scoreres that
    // match on first document keeps preserved):
    ArrayUtil.mergeSort(scorers, new Comparator<Scorer>() { // sort the array

        return o1.docID() - o2.docID();

    // NOTE: doNext() must be called before the re-sorting of the array later on.
    // The reason is this: assume there are 5 scorers, whose first docs are 1,
    // 2, 3, 5, 5 respectively. Sorting (above) leaves the array as is. Calling
    // doNext() here advances all the first scorers to 5 (or a larger doc ID
    // they all agree on). 
    // However, if we re-sort before doNext() is called, the order will be 5, 3,
    // 2, 1, 5 and then doNext() will stop immediately, since the first scorer's
    // docs equals the last one. So the invariant that after calling doNext() 
    // all scorers are on the same doc ID is broken.
    if (doNext() == NO_MORE_DOCS) {
      // The scorers did not agree on any document.
      lastDoc = NO_MORE_DOCS;

    // If first-time skip distance is any predictor of
    // scorer sparseness, then we should always try to skip first on
    // those scorers.
    // Keep last scorer in it's last place (it will be the first
    // to be skipped on), but reverse all of the others so that
    // they will be skipped on in order of original high skip.
