Allow loading of additional "built-in bridges" via autodiscovery

Description

We have a set of built-in bridges, all defined in org.hibernate.search.bridge.impl.BridgeFactory. It would be great to allow additional modules to extend the set of automatically supported bridges, to allow for example automatic conversion for:

  • JodaTime

  • Java8 date/time

  • Hibernate Spatial types

  • bring your own?

This would allow to better modularize the Tika integration too.
