The latest CVS also uses Lucene as a search engine in place of the 
search engine that I wrote. This means that it will have to index 
everything to start off with, so things might be a bit annoying to start 
off with.
Lucene also has a different search syntax, so I need to think some more 
about that, specifically the "best match" thing won't work any more.
The old functionallity can be restored by editing 
resource/org.crosswire.jsword.book.search.SearchEngine.properties and 
making the default be "ser" rather than lucene.

So is it worth putting work into re-instating best match? Your thoughts
