You're welcome. It was fun to code.

>>open the original Dokuments with the platform dependant mimetype viewer

Someone else already explained the problems with this... What is a 
document in Lucene? It's a set of fields and their String values (or 
their terms), so it's not possible to open the original document from 
which the values were extracted, because there is no original...

No problem. I mean, technically it's no problem, it's just a problem of 
getting to it on my so called "free time" ...

Well... I thought it was just reported as a bug. I don't see any 
responses to this, so I guess this is still a bug, and Luke is not the 
one to be fixed. :-)

No problem.

Need to check this, but shouldn't be any problem. I'm not sure whether 
it's useful, though... ?

It's not impossible, just time-consuming - all information (except the 
parts removed by analyzer) is already there. This functionality has a 
high "cool-ness" factor, which makes it very tempting... :-)

Thanks for these suggestions! I can't promise any timeline, but 
eventually I'd like to include this functionality in Luke. Patches are 
always welcome... :-)
