I can easily check out the branch and provide the equivalent of
LUCENENET-453 for it if that helps.

Probably not.  Are there additional people who are no committers yet who
want to help?

I realize the two approaches are apealing to different kinds of
developers.  The line-by-line approach will give you the power (and
bugs) of the Java version and is pretty easy to maintain once done but
sounds boring.  There is not much creativity involved.

My understanding of the docs has been that a line-by-line port would
still be kept but an additional .NET API was provided.  I may be totally
off, but that's how I read it.
