Once Lucene Java releases 3.1 and we decide here which ICU we want to  
use. I'm leaning towards C++ ICU with PyICU but I'm biased. Does the  
ICU stuff you see now on the PyLucene 3.x branch work well for you ?

There recently was talk of a 3.1 release on the java-dev list and how  
to release much more frequently. The discussion then got a bit stuck  
on maven support and the date for the next release didn't come up. You  
might want to ping A lot of good stuff has  
happened on the 3.x branch and a 3.1 release would be welcome.
