Uh, temporary insanity today, I guess.  :-)

It just struck me funny today.  I think when I saw that Karl put in a  
patch claiming to have most all of it in place, and I figured we  
might as well jump in.

Right.  I guess I was suggesting parallel support for a little while,  
but there really would never be any incentive to force the issue.  My  
Maven 2 experience has been ambiguous to date.  We are in the process  
of upgrading from M1.  In a lot of ways, things are much better than  
both ANT and M1, but in a lot of ways, it just isn't there yet and it  
has been frustrating getting help and finding documentation.  For the  
"usual" cases, I think M2 works great, but in less common cases, it  
isn't so great.   Lucene probably fits into the usual cases, so we  
would probably be fine.

At any rate, sorry for the confusion.  I am fine w/ whichever way  
works out.
