Subject Re: [POLL] What should happen to PyLucene now?

No, it wouldn't.I haven't tried py4j, just looked at docs and the key
word I see is 'dynamic'. We used dynamic wrappers (I don't remember
exact names, that was too long ago, but the problem using JNI that way
is poor performance. JCC, in contrast, generates wrappers that provide
outstanding performance. This is what I love it for.

It's not a pain, I should say. Quite easy if you clearly understand
what it does :)

I would move it to P3 itself, but I have no enough time and P2 support
still gives 3.5 years for that :)
