The main concern I have is where the "hood" line is drawn here. I
don't think Solr should become a central repository interface, but it
should be easily integrated and perhaps be able to tie in external
resources to returned results.
My ideal solution is WebDAV interface with commit hooks into Solr.
With Subversion behind the scenes of the WebDAV interface, or an XML
database, or file system or whatever. :)
