Yes.  The default scoring model is the same as Lucene's.

Lucy does not provide a MoreLikeThisQuery.  In theory, it's not difficult to
implement, but some of the APIs you would need are not public yet.

MoreLikeThisQuery has been discussed before on the lucy-dev list.  I have
misgivings about the algorithm that the Lucene implementation uses because the
results are noisy.
