Just wanted to get this topic re-started again.
Essentially what I think this project/DSL/module/thingy-bob is thought
to become: -
A simple package where a user can build Lucene queries without having
to know too much about Lucene itself. If I'm headed down the wrong
thought path then just thwack me.

What's gained I believe is the fact that people can build complex
lucene queries easier. Currently, it's a bit clunky imo so if we
provide a cleaner way to build them it can prove beneficial to any
lucene user (myself included for querying on Infinispan).
Any other thoughts?
