It would be more efficient to store lucene index into slide BUT 
implement org.apache.lucene.store.Directory via slide API (on the server 
side) directly and not over and HTTP connection.
(Anyway the indexer is server side.)

note: Lucene juste need (Create => Write_only => Close) and (Open => 
Random_Read_only => Close). and delete Lucene never "modify" the "file", 
but you need not to just implement org.apache.lucene.store.Directory 
Interface but also a org.apache.lucene.store.InputStream, 
org.apache.lucene.store.OutputStream, ... etc

I can find some time to work on this if someone think this is something 

But all of this doesn't help for re-index... : (
