Subject Re: velocity response writer breaks portability

For some reason I didn't get Yonik's original message today, but I  
spotted elsewhere -

Why is Velocity any different than clustering or Solr Cell in this  
regard?  Doesn't moving the example directory affect them too?
It's always been my intention to move VrW to Solr core.  Any  
objections to that?
And in response to rmuir's question - it definitely makes for a good  
demo of Solr, though I don't think it is the right demo of low-level  
Lucene usage.  But I'm all for VrW becoming more of a first class  
Everyone ok with VrW moving to Solr core?  I'll take care of it if
