I haven't, however I have just got an android phone, so I've been 
itching to have a go.

There used to be 2 implementations of the search interfaces, although I 
suspect that we've junked the pre-lucene one by now. It should be 
trivial to create a stub implementation (so long as you don't want the 
ability to search ;-)

I'm CCing jsword-devel at crosswire.org which is where this conversation 
should probably take place.
