DM Smith commented on LUCENE-1799:
----------------------------------

Would someone be able to champion this. It appears ready to go. for the last 1.5 years. Looks
like it is merely a permission problem. I'd like to see it get in the 3.x series.

> In lucene-1793, there is the off-topic suggestion to provide compression of Unicode data.
The motivation was a custom encoding in a Russian analyzer. The original supposition was that
it provided a more compact index.
> This led to the comment that a different or compressed encoding would be a generally
useful feature. 
> BOCU-1 was suggested as a possibility. This is a patented algorithm by IBM with an implementation
in ICU. If Lucene provide it's own implementation a freely avIlable, royalty-free license
would need to be obtained.
> SCSU is another Unicode compression algorithm that could be used. 
> An advantage of these methods is that they work on the whole of Unicode. If that is not
needed an encoding such as iso8859-1 (or whatever covers the input) could be used.
