> For a while now Lucene.Net has required the use of SharpZipLib for the use of compressed
fields in the indexes.  Can you please remove this dependency on a very old Zip library. 
Even the author has moved on and abandon the project in favor of his newer DotNetZip library.
> I would suggest for the .NET API that you use the tools available in the System.IO.Compression
Namespace (
so that you don't have to have an external dependency to begin with.  This namespace was introduced
in .NET 2.0 and forward so no third party needs to be included.
