This UTF stuff is not my thing, and I have a hard time following all
the discussion here (read: I don't get it)... but it sounds like good

Could one of the other Lucene committers following this thread apply
the patches and commit the stuff if it looks good?  Perhaps this is
something we should do between 1.9 and 2.0, since the patch will make
the new indices incompatible, and breaking the compatibility at version
2.0 would be okay, while 1.9 should remain compatible with 1.4.3
indices and just have a bunch of methods deprecated.

If some job changes work out for me, I may have some time to make the
1.9 release.
