I wasn't clear enough.  When I said 'outside code' I meant the code
that was contributed that you want to refactor.  I wasn't referring to
the Lucene code.  It definitely needs to be in sync with the latter if
you want to be able to even compile it.  Do you intend to keep it in
sync with the original author's code updates?

No voting required?  Works for me in this situation, if that is the
fair thing to do.

I agree with the above.
