Excellent.  I'm glad to hear it.

I don't have any opinion one way or the other on the name, but I will 
mention that I've always thought it was kind of odd to use something 
like 'Lucene.Net' as the internal namespace, the .Net portion seems 
rather redundant, given that you're talking about C# code it's rather 
obvious that it's .Net, why not simply place it in the Lucene namespace 
and save some typing?
