we use OAI to sync data from various sources on our marine science
portals and it works fine.. we  use it for metadata in DIF XML 
and ISO 19136 format. 
For some first tests with OAI you could try the DLESE software
which is available at: http://www.dlese.org/library/index.jsp
well, I think the Lucene will not work with metadata other than
dublin core, but harvesting etc should work fine with metadata in
e.g. darwin core..
