Thank you for the offer, I'll put together a proposal sometime this week 
and send it in.  In the past various different people have expressed 
interest in a C version of Lucene, hopefully we can get some of them 
involved more directly once it's in the incubator.

I agree, cross language compatibility tests would be nice to have.

Additionally it would be good to work on updating the disk format 
documentation, I've found several cases where the docs are quite out of 
date compared to the current code.  It's hard to expect the various 
different ports to maintain compatibility when the formats are only 
documented in code.
