I have implemented a simple SRU2KinoSearch client:

Brian Cassidy brought to my attention that KinoSearch supports the
same query language as Lucence, and since the Perl module named
CQ::Node contains a toLucene method for converting CQL queries into
Lucene queries, I was able to interface with my KinoSearch index.
Thus, Simple SRU2KinoSearch Client.

Hooray for open source software and open standards!
