>>Regretfully, I'm a terrible Swing programmer

I know you've raised this before, - I wasn't prompting you to do the work :)

I did make some promising in-roads into a GWT web-based version which was Apache-license friendly
but ultimately I didn't want to bring in a build-time dependency on the 10Mb Google GWT compiler.
That seemed too cumbersome to add to the Lucene packaging. 
Swing is probably the way to go but like a lot of people here I have limited time - maybe
a Summer of Code project would help get this laid to rest?

I agree, this would be ideal. Regretfully, I'm a terrible Swing programmer, so unless someone
else does it it's simply not going to happen. All code in Luke except for the Thinlet class
is under Apache License, so feel free to start coding :)
