I should back off a little bit.  I really do not want Lucy to go  
away.  I do want a C port of Lucene (even a loose one).  So, let's  
figure out how to build a community around it.

I think Jukka's suggestion is the best:  Donate KS and or some portion  
of it to the incubator that you think will make for Lucy and we will  
put it through incubation.  I'd even be happy to mentor it and I would  
bet the PMC would sponsor it.
