How about we use /pub/sword/raw/idx/L1/[book].zip then?
If Java Lucene indexes and CLucene indexes are compatible then it
won't be proprietary to JSword. If they are not compatible, or if you
want to use different options in creating the index then you can use
/pub/sword/raw/idx/C1/[book].zip or something.
