While I agree with that point, Lucene already has lots and lots of
static configuration.
Having actsAsVersion won't add any new woes. Well, it won't remove them either.

I dislike both single static variable approach and Settings object you
have to pass into each end every constructor.
If I absolutely must choose and have no right to just throw all these
back-compat crutches out of the window, I'd choose a single static

On the offnote, it's amusing to see how the discussion is calming down
and will seemingly end in minor amendmends to the policy, if any at
all :)
