Yeah, this could probably be managed by ensuring that across versions 
of Lucene, care is taken to try and avoid breaking backward 
compatibility with plugins. Where it's unavoidable, the release notes 
should be very explicit about the old/new usage, so plugin authors can 
trivially support the latest versions.

It's pretty much the standard plugin problem, and as long as 
lucene-core shows love to those plugin authors, all is well.
