I realise this has little weight since all I can do is talk about it right now, but I think
a vanilla C approach would kill more birds, as you could then use it rather easily in C, C++
and Objective C without further effort. It wouldn't have class and implementation files, but
adding those would be a different layer as I understand.

My own project hasn't gone near the full text engine for nearly a year, so I haven't been
able to make any progress on anything Lucy. :(

Something is likely better than nothing....
