Yes, that's correct. I've developed a set of add-on modules for doing 
the revers lookup (aka TermVector support), but right now lack the time 
to integrate it with the latest Lucene version and contribute it. So if 
you are looking for a quick solution, there isn't one. If you are 
looking to add this to Lucene, and are willing to dig deep into the file 
formats, perhaps you can help bringing the code I have up to date with 
the latest Lucene version.
