I do not think a switch to 1.6 is such a large problem like 1.4 to 1.5
(generics). The syntax of java code did not change, only some new classes
and methods. The change to 1.6 would be more smooth. I think even the class
format did not really change. As long as some of us use 1.5 (I for myself, I
hate 1.6 and its bugs), there is no problem. The only problem is some new
methods in some classes. The new things like webservice annotations and so
on are of no use for Lucene.

The time until 1.5 was too long in my opinion.
