Developers and dev managers at companies doing build vs. buy decisions
whether they will do one of the following:

1) pay big bucks to get FAST or whatever
2) use Solr (free/cheap!)
3) pay [variable] bucks to build their own with Lucene
4) pay [variable but high] to build their own from scratch

I'm not concerned with casual downloaders.  I'm talking about the companies
and people who
may or may not be interested in making multi-million dollar decisions
regarding using or
not using Lucene or Solr.
