I'm catching up here, but I'm still feeling lost.  I've been reading
the recent messages that I only skimmed, and browsing through the
Clownfish source, but it feels like I'm still lacking some steps.
I'm having trouble matching up the discussion here
to the C code.  I think I understand the finished layout, but is there
an overview of how the bootstrapping works?

It's sadly ironic, but it would be really helpful to have a better
search tool for the Lucy source and mailing lists.   The Apache online
tools for browsing the list archives and version control are clumsy,
and Google has evolved so that I can no longer depend on it.   I
realize it's as much my task as anyone else's, but using Lucy to
improve the Apache tools might be a great way to showcase the project.
