How do I do distance based searches with Lucene? I can do this in SQL
with longitude/latitude values, but can this be done in Lucene?

I can't do my full search in the database as I want the fast fuzzy
search capabilities of Lucene.  It is possible to do the main search
in Lucene and then do post filtering on distance outside of Lucene.
Does anyone have a better idea? How are other people handling this?
This seems a common task.
