The dynamic searching capability can be got for free by integrating your 
work into Forrest (a cocoon based publishing framework that is used by 
Cocoon and many other projects to publish their websites [1]). We (the 
Forrest devs) are watching with interest. If you can make it work in a 
static environment then it is a simple step to create a plugin in 
Forrest which already includes Lucene for searching.

Of course, Bertrand may have something else in mind as well.
