I encourage you to propose the codebase to the Incubator.  I'd be happy 
to be a sponsor of it, and I'm already tuning in to the incubator list. 
  The lack of community around this codebase will be an issue leaving 
the incubator, but I think it should come into incubation with no 
problems.  The Lucene repository is set up to accommodate other 
languages now and the lucene4c codebase would be a nice start on 
getting cross-language unit tests started.  It would be great to have 
compatibility tests for the various ports of Lucene.
