Yes, they have some of the things that are planned for Tika (OSGi,  
many extractors based on PDFBox, POI, etc.) plus they have crawlers  
for things like Mail sources, etc.  The license is Academic Free  
license or something like that.
Some Lucener's are using it, and I have started playing with it  
instead of going the Nutch porting route.  I think it will meet my  
needs, but I would still prefer an ASF version.  The authors are  
pretty responsive, so you may consider talking to them about synergies.
