FWIW... One reason I haven't been persistent or hurried about the  
UTF-8-clean/speedup patches is because they aren't backwards  
compatible, and thus should not be considered prior to a 1.9  
release.  The other is that I suspect that given sufficient effort,  
byte-count Lucene strings will win out over char-chount Lucene  
strings -- we'll know after I tinker with the merge process and  
submit a diff.  Again, I haven't been rushing -- I'm finishing up the  
Perl/C port of the org.apache.lucene.index package to familiarize  
myself with all the nooks and crannies first.

If you go directly to 2.0, when will the next opportunity be to  
introduce a backwards-compatibility-killing index format change?
