I don't know for sure when we'll release Lucene 1.9/2.0 either, but  
it'll be sooner rather than later.  My hunch is by August.  Given  
we've made lots of changes since 1.4.3, we'll release a beta or two  
in order to iron out any glaring issues.

My vote would be to keep with the trunk (and use only non-deprecated  
API) so that Lucene4c is going to match Lucene 2.0.
