 * increasing start position and finally by increasing end position. */

   * Returns the payload data for the current span.
   * This is invalid until {@link #next()} is called for

   * so if the payload data for the current position is not needed,
   * this method may not be called at all for performance reasons. An ordered
   * SpanQuery does not lazy load, so if you have payloads in your index and
   * you do not want ordered SpanNearQuerys to collect payloads, you can
   * disable collection with a constructor option.<br>
