Thanks for the suggestion, Andi! I'll try your suggestion on Monday. I 
hope it's sufficient to create a working version of lucene + bobo-browse 
in order to provide my co-worker Julian a foundation for his work on 
bobo-browse. But I fear that it's not going to work. I carefully 
excluded any jar file from the bobobrowse egg that is already part of 
pylucene (--classpath instead of --include or --jar). The lucene class 
are probably wrapped because bobo-browse references the classes in its 
jar file.

By the way I've created the Makefile for bobo-browse based on your 
Makefile for pylucene. With your template and your good work it was 
trivial to create the Python bindings. Thanks ;)

I've an idea how you can solve the inter-package issue. Is it possible 
to create some kind of type interference for JCC types that point to the 
same Java class (e.g. lucene.Query.class_ == bobobrowse.Query.class_)?
