sounds awesome, but...  the dependency on software that is not
installed/testable in the Apache infrastructure is kind of a show
stopper for getting into the lucene code base.  In general, everyone
needs to be able to run "ant test" and make sure they have not broken

However, check:

that may be a good place to host something like this.
