I started writing a module to read lucene indexes but didn't get very
far - a number of implementation features (variable-length integers so
you need to read them a single byte at a time, lengths in characters
instead of bytes so you can't just skip over a block that you want to
ignore) make them annoying to deal with in their normal form (although
I'm sure it makes alot of sense for the java implementation). If you
ignore some of those encoding oddities but use the same basic
architecture of named fields to search within that might be a reasonable
foundation to start building on.
