I just tried Xapian out -- builds easily, looks like fairly straight-forward Python bindings, and okay documentation. Very interesting. PyLucene still drives me nuts to build, so it's just not worth pursuing at the moment, and I'm not even sure if it offers anything over Xapian. I'd looked at Swish-E quite a bit before, but Xapian looks a little more modern and with better-defined layers.
