Also note that George might not be on general@lucene (I've CC'd him  
so he can see Lucene.Net is being discussed here).

I highly recommend folks in other environments also look at Solr - - when contemplating whether to use  
ports of Java Lucene.  Solr is a RESTful (lower cased) web service  
that provides a lot of nice facilities on top of Java Lucene.  It'll  
integrate nicely into any environment, and only requires that you run  
a Java web container such as Tomcat, Jetty, Resin, etc.
