By my question is why doesn't this go through the Lucene project?  The 
Lucene PMC could bring the codebase into their project and register the 
IP stuff here w/ the incubator.

I hope I'm just misunderstanding, but this appears to be a proposal to 
create a new project at the ASF called "Lucene4c"
