semantic search in alfresco

Hi,

I'm wondering about the possibility of implementing "semantic search" in Alfresco? Not sure if "semantic" is the right word…

What I would like to get is:
         - Search for a word.
         - You get docs containg and/or related to that doc.
         - You also get relations between those docs. Graphical display. Customer says wow, I want this. ;-))
                     -  Relations are based on common words containing those docs.
                     -  Those common words should also be similar to the word I started the search with.

Could anyone tell me how o where I could start digging?
Is there any module or plugin already working on this?

Alfresco is based on lucene indexes, so I tried looking for a lucene module for it. No luck.

Any idea?

Should I start this from scratch?
