Since my contribution in LUCENE-1732 I have been working on re-writing most
of the spatial contrib, particularly the Cartesian Tier code. I have added
javadoc, tests and and have removed many of the classes which were either
deprecated, unused or unnecessary. I have also tried to define easier
extension points for adding things like JTS support, and different data
formats (whether it be geohashes or traditional latitude and longitude).
Much of the work has been done with Solr integration in mind with the
overall goal being to create enterprise ready spatial search support.

I am also planning on collaborating with some of the developers from the JPL
to improve the range the geographic functions supported and to provide
efficient searching with even the most massive and varied of data sets.

I have every intention to contribute this as another patch soon.

The usage of deprecated methods (at least Filter.bits()) should be fixed

I would definitely give it a hole bunch of love if only I understood how to
have it working :)

I did a few tests based on the test cases provided in the current version
but without any success...
Moreover, as far as I recall,during my tests some method calls were
deprecated in favour of more recent Lucene 2.9 methods. So I don't know if
it needs rewriting or not.

I would love to write the javadoc for the entire spatial contrib (I have
some time to do it) but I would really need to understand and to have a
working example to base my writings on ... as for now I am pretty lost.
