And this is what I've been alluding to.  DRY is a principle I strongly 
subscribe to - Don't Repeat Yourself.

Notice also that the Lucene version number is part of the filename of 
the JAR: lucene-1.4.3.jar.  This is good enough for my purposes of 
seeing which version of Lucene I'm using visually.  I don't rename my 
JAR files.

The WebStart point is well taken though, and an area I'm increasingly 
involved in.  Both of my last projects have involved a WebStart 
component, however there was no client-side Lucene so I have not dealt 
with the repackaging of it.
