Lucy is all new code, so the project isn't actually passing through  
the incubator.  We're looking at what Lucene did, what Ferret (Ruby/ 
C, Dave Balmain) did, and what KinoSearch (Perl/C, myself) did,  
cherry-picking the best bits, and synthesizing something new.  I  
don't really see how that process can be reconciled with the concept  
of importing CLucene (C++) en toto.  I imagine Ben would bring a lot  
to Lucy, though, should he choose to start contributing.  (Same for  
other CLucene authors; I'm only familiar with Ben.)
