For Lucene in Action Erik and I wrote a little extensible framework for
indexing various documents, including MS Word.  We used POI, so the
solution works on Winblows, UNIX/Linux, OSX....  I think the code is
bit too big for the list, but the book will be out soon.  Erik and I
are going through copy and tech editing right now.  POI:

I could ber wrong, but I don't think that there is an indexer for
word 
documents.

There's a Python version of Lucene called Lupy with a Python indexer
for 
all sorts of document types (http://www.methods.co.nz/docindexer/).  
Would anyone be willing to port those over.  Although the MSWord
indexer 
only words on MSWindows and you may need MSWord for it to work.  Man,

that's no good.

I think that we'd need to ask the OpenOffice people for help on this.
