Its just more work. Besides the duplication functionality itself, in
Lucene we (mostly Uwe) developed code to assist with tasks like this.
For example, we have utility code that makes it easier to maintain
backwards compatibility, test harnesses, etc.

The job still isn't done, but to do it right, it only makes sense to
re-use these resources so its done safely and more effectively. But
this would require even more duplication!!!

Both Solr and Lucene. I'm not wearing a hat in this case: its just
something that needs to be done and we are in it together.
