This could be a significant performance hit. Using ICU is a good 
idea, but typically putting some simple front-end filtering in front 
can save you a lot of time.

E.g. if there are a lot of characters that don't require any 
decomposition, you could do some quick (and very conservative) checks 
to skip calls to ICU.

But of course, measure then optimize :)

If you're asking about how to set up Eclipse to do development for 
Lucene, I found some posts to the mailing list a while back, but 
nothing definitive.

FWIW, my experience w/Eclipse 3.1 was that trying to auto-create 
Eclipse projects using the Ant build file didn't work very well. So 
we wound up manually creating the project, setting up the classpath,
