I'd say, that's largely matter of taste. Both will give you the terms.

1.3RC1 contains code frozen features, for stable features, submitted earlier 
and integrated by lucene developers with access to CVS. Patches were 
submitted to be discussed, and haven't really been evaluated... so, they will 
be part of 1.4, if they get integrated I think.

It may be that some combination of 2 patches will be incorporated. I have been 
busy lately and haven't had enough time (alas) to look at the other patch in 
detail. :-/

It required changes to some Lucene classes, but I think those changes weren't 
submitted as patches. Changes are not major, so you should be able to add 
them if you wish.
