Did you have a specific reason why you didn't want to send an HTTP request
to Solr to perform the spellcheck operation? I mean, that is probably
easier than diving into raw Lucene code. Also, Solr lets you do a
spellcheck from a remote client whereas the Lucene spellcheck needs to be
on the same machine as the Lucene/Solr index directory.
