I'd like to move forward with this shortly, to keep on with the build/test improvements.

if there is any problem at all, i'll happily revert it.

> The VelocityResponseWriter deserves to be a first-class citizen in Solr, and not tacked
on.  The benefit is that UI can be generated right from Solr cleanly and easily via simple
templating.  The longer term goal is to migrate from the Solr admin interface from inflexible
built-in JSPs to a cleaner layout Velocity set of templates that can be overridden externally
if desired (for styling, or adding in plugin UI).
> Another large benefit to having VrW in core is that plugins can then ship with Velocity
templates in their own .jar files to provide their own bits of UI or templated response capabilities
(text fragments or full HTML responses).
> The impact of this change is a slightly larger solr.war with the additional Velocity
dependencies added-in.
