Just use 2.0.* for GCJ.
New Lucene releases are made every half a year at best.  It will be a while before we have
2.1.  By that time GCJ may be up to speed.

Subject: Re: Lucene and Java 1.5 

My concern is really with the use of GCJ with Lucene.  I'd hate to see
Lucene core releases that couldn't be used with the latest "stable"
release of GCJ.  Unfortunately, it's very hard to know what that
means.  What's the latest version of GCJ?  What Java language features
are supported in it?  It's impossible to tell from the GCJ home page.
