Let me be more direct.  Encryption of Lucene fields may be useful. 
However Lucene's developers don't appear to feel that it's appropriate 
to include it in Lucene's the core at this time, and it doesn't seem 
you're making much progress convincing them.

There are two ways you could go from here: you could continue to argue 
whether encryption should be added to the core, or you could try to 
incorporate the feedback from the Lucene team, and perhaps try to get 
encryption added to Lucene as an add-on package.  I think the latter 
approach is much more likely to be successful and will be less 
frustrating for all concerned.
