Could you please clarify the following for me:
1. Why and how would indexing corrupt a search running at the same time?
   If the index is simply being modified, this shouldn't be a problem.
   If your indexing application does more with the index, such as moving or
removing the index directory, then this would be a problem.

2. What is "indexing log file"?  Is that supposed to be "indexing LOCK file"?

So you esentially want to somehow specify a directory to which Lucene should
write various lock files, such as: luceneLockDir=/tmp ?

But would that really work on CD-ROMs?  I don't know enough about CD-ROMs, but I
think this wouldn't work for CD-ROMs, as there would be no writable file system
anywhere on CD-ROM, so lock file creation would have to be _completely disabled_
for read-only media, such as CD-ROMs.  Changing the lock file directory wouldn't
do it for CD-ROMs, would it?

I am not being sarcastic, the questions are for real :)

Regarding the 1.3 release - yes, I think it will be a while before 1.3 is released.
