For highlighting and snippet extraction? yes.

Alas, here's the rub. There are no Ruby bindings at present. The core C
code is stable and "complete" (for some value of "complete" -- i.e. it
works). But to date there are only Perl bindings.

I posted about this on the Ferret list awhile back, inviting Ruby
developers to come have a look and help jump-start the Ruby
implemenation. I realize your project has some immediate needs; please
also consider hanging around and helping us define the Ruby
implementation. Subscribe to lucy-dev to get started.
