Chiming in just a bit here - isn't there any concern that independent of
whether or not people "can"
build lucene without checking out solr, the mere fact that Lucene will be
effectively a "subdirectory"
of solr... is there no concern that there will then be a perception that
Lucene is a subproject of
Solr, instead of vice-versa?

The way mavenified projects work is that there would instead be a top level
in which both solr
and lucene would be submodules (and thus also subdirectories in svn), with a
from solr to lucene (in the pom.xml for maven, but easy enough to do with
the build.xml with
ant).  Checking out solr without lucene should be doable (using snapshot
jars from lucene
trunk nightly, maybe?), and the reverse should be easy, as could be checking
out the
top-level and getting everything (including a top-level build.xml which
<include>'s or antcall's
into the subdirectory build.xmls).

It seems really weird to have Lucene appear as a subdirectory of Solr,
especially for people
out there who aren't using Solr.
