I don't think thats necessarily the case, for me (as someone who tries
to vote for pylucene releases), the problem was a combination of two
things, as I did try to actually test it over the weekend:

1. being on travel, meaning stuck with a mac os X computer.
2. release candidate not compiling on my mac os X computer, because
something tries to apply -mno-fused-madd when compiling, apparently
this is a common issue with python and mavericks?

Two things that may have nothing to do with pylucene, but was pretty
annoying specially for a non-python developer :)

I am happy to try it on my linux machine tonight!
