Who is this "We" of which you refer to?  I don't recall being a part of it and I am the one
who is assigned the issue and was actively working on it.  An IRC conversation in the middle
of the night without the primary person who is assigned the issue and actively working it
does not give you the right to take a different tack, especially on an issue that has been
open for months without nary a comment from anyone.   I find it totally unacceptable and it
brings front and center one of my primary concerns about IRC.   

Have we really gotten to this point where things are so burningly urgent (esp. for a minor
change) that we can't wait one day so that the primary authors of the patch have a chance
to weigh in on proposed changes?  This is not how the ASF works and it isn't how Lucene works.
 There is a reason why votes are open for 3 days (yes, I know this wasn't a vote).  We are
a global project and have people in all time zones.  Please respect that and show some courtesy
to fellow committers, especially the ones who are actively working an issue.
