Nice to hear from you again. :)

FYI, there have been many major changes since then. 3122 is not compatible
with current svn trunk in terms of either API or file format. With regards to
* The "vectorized" flag has been renamed to "highlightable" and is now off
* Highlighter, like everything else, has been ported to C.
* Highlighter's internal workings have changed. This process is incomplete
and the present implementation is buggy.
I plan to adapt Highlighter to approximate the algorithm discussed at
<https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-1522> and cure its bugginess
prior to the next release. This is on my to-do list following finishing
segment-centric sorting and real-time indexing.

IIRC, there may have been something wrt the addition of segments with no
highlight data resulting in bogus empty files. But that applied to the stable
branch, and I don't recall whether it also afflicted svn trunk.
