Searching AVM Lucene Index outside Alfresco

I would like to be able to search the Lucene index for a particular AVM store outside of Alfresco.  I have written some code that uses the Webservices API and it actually works quite well.  The problem is that my Alfresco installation has 80 web projects in it and the site we are developing will get a lot of traffic.  So I do not want to expose our CMS to this kind of load.

I see two options from here:

1) Create a separate instance of Alfresco for this website.
2) Push the lucene index for alf_data/AVM/mywebsite/ to the webserver where I can write my own lucene queries against it.

I kind of like the idea of option 2, I am just not sure where to start.

  - What does the index look like?
  - What terms can I use?
  - Why are there multiple directories in the index?
  - Are they all used?
  - Is one more current than the others?

I am starting to look at the code in Subversion that deals with the indexes, but it would be great to get a head start.
