I'm afraid that won't work:

  Q. Are Lucy and Lucene compatible?

  A. No. Lucy is a "loose" port of Lucene designed to take full advantage of
     C's unique feature set, rather than a line-by-line translation from Java.
     The two libraries are not compatible in terms of either file format or
     API, and there are no plans to establish such compatibility.
