I don't know about compound format support in 1.3 but if it is standard in 1.4
it should be supported by PyLucene just as well once it is upgraded to work
with Java Lucene 1.4.

Yes, the goal is to ultimately expose all public, documented APIs of Java
Lucene in PyLucene. PyLucene started as a Chandler project and the APIs that
ar currently exposed are the ones Chandler needs at the moment. I've already
added a bunch more as people submitted requests or even better, patches, for
the ones they wanted most. More can be added easily to the PyLucene.i file.

You're welcome !
