Ugh -- this is no good: it's a break to our back-compat, I think?  Ie  
when we
say "complete API back-compatbility", here:

We mean you can drop in new JAR and run your app w/ no problems, right?

Uwe, how could we fix it (LUCENE-1478) so we get back to "drop-in new  
back compatibility?

Also, it'd be great to fix "ant test-tag" to somehow test "jar drop-in  
back compat",
vs "full recompilation against new JAR" that it does today.  It'd have  
to check out
the full sources on the back-compat tag, compile JAR & tests from  
those old
sources, swap in new JAR, then run the tests.
