Great! In that case I will try to install it using cpan after the new release.

There are 2 more things I would like to know.
Is Lucy able to index and search for UTF-8 encoded documents? (because if I understood right,
KinoSearch can't do that.)
And, is it possible to run 2 or more separate processes in parallel that index new data in
the same time?
