My intention while I was creating that branch was just to make 2.9.4 a
little bit more .Net like(+ maybe some performance).
I used many codes from 3.0.3 Java. So it is somewhere between 2.9.4 & 3.0.3
But I didn't think it as a separate branch to evolve on its own path. It
is(or I think it is) the final version of 2.9

One of the benefits of moving forward with the conversion of the Java
Lucene, is that they're using more recent versions of Java that support
things like generics and enums, so the direct port is getting more and more
like .NET, though not in all respects of course.  I'm of the mind, though,
that one of the larger annoyances, Iterables, should be converted to
Enumerables in the direct port.  It makes it a pain to use it in .NET
without it inheriting from IEnumerable, since it can't be used in a foreach
loop or with linq.  Also, since the direct port isn't perfect anyway, it
seems a port of the IDEA of iterating would be more in the spirit of what
we're trying to accomplish, since the code would pretty much be the same,
just with different method names.

I sort of got off topic there for a second, but I guess the future of
2.9.4g depends on the extent that it is becoming more .NET like.
 Obviously, while java is starting to use similar constructs that we have
in .NET, it will never be perfect.  Admittedly, I haven't looked at 2.9.4g
in a little while, so I'm not sure how much it now differs from 3.x, since
there's a relatively large change there already.
