Unfortunately, The original code for the morphological analysis of 
arabic was released by Tim Buckwalter under the GPL license (see the 
readme file). The "viral" aspect of this licence fordids me to deliver 
my code under a more restrictive one AFAIC.

Maybe is would be a good idea to give some pointers to strongly 
Lucene-related sites that can deal with the GPL ?

Yours sincerly,
