committers were also Lucene committers and there was a fair amount of duplicated work and
a desire to be on the same version.  Modularization was/is also a benefit.

Actually the whole merge discussion started because Mike wanted to modularize the analysis
code and create modules.

It's right there:

http://s.apache.org/A2R

Whether since then it's not been first priority or not is of course debatable, but it's at
least what kicked off the discussion and eventual action.

Cheers,
Chris
