Hey Joe,
	That's fine.  Let me know if there is anything I need to do for you. 
Don't we have a /pub/jsword directory for your stuff?  I understand what 
you mean by having the same base directory for modules (which would be 
/pub/sword/raw for our server, so maybe /pub/sword/raw/idx, but this 
isn't a sword module data structure.  This is jsword's proprietary (in 
the sense of not publicly sword declared) data.  It would be nice to 
unify a common index format for sword modules.

	Does it really take lucene 5+ minutes to generate?  That's a bummer. 
You would think it wouldn't take much longer than a single non-index 
search thru the Bible.

	To belatedly answer your question on sword-devel, I honestly have no 
idea if clucene indecies are binary compatible with the java lucene
