JSword also creates its own indexes and places them in a different 
location than Sword. But for now that is goodness, we use different 
analyzers to create the indexes. And also, Sword indexes Strong's 
numbers, which JSword does not do. To further complicate the matter we 
are using Lucene 2.1, which creates indexes that Sword cannot read. 
CLucene just can't keep up with Lucene:)

However, JSword can use the Sword indexes with little problem.
