But, I don't think we'd ever do this -- ie when we release Solr we'll
also release Lucene.

Think about it... if for some exotic reason Lucene is unreleasable,
then, presumably we would not up and release Solr until we fixed
whatever was broken with Lucene, since it'd also break Solr.

It is conceivable we could release only Lucene (yes, this was an
explicit part of the vote, take 2), but I expect in practice that'll be
the exception not the rule... it remains to be seen.

On version numbering... my inclination would be to let Solr and Lucene
use their own version numbers (don't sync them up).  I know it'd
simplify our lives to have the same version across the board, but
these numbers are really for our users, telling them when big changes
were made, back compat broken, etc.  I think that trumps dev
