Mapping a single entity type to multiple indexes

Description

Introduce a way to map a single entity type to multiple indexes:

  • on bootstrap, user code will provide a list of index names that this entity type will be mapped to (instead of just one usually).

  • at runtime, each entity to index will be inspected by user code upon indexing, and routed to the correct index.

For example, we could repurpose the RoutingKeyBridge, renaming it to a RoutingBridge. Its APIs would change a lot, but something like this could do:

This should address:

  • Part of the use cases mentioned in HSEARCH-3313: essentially all the use cases except those where the list of indexes is not known in advance. Even that one could be covered eventually, but let's keep it for later.

  • Most, if not all, of the use cases for Indexing Event Interceptors (). These interceptors are mainly used to prevent indexing of entities that are in a certain state. We could provide a way for users to route an entity to "nowhere" (route.discard()?), meaning it will be removed from all indexes and will not be added anywhere.
