That means the assert in question isnt important at all. I'll remove it.

Again my problem is the idea that having a failing build is "ok"
because certain types of failures "don't matter". If they dont matter
they should be removed.

It causes a ton of noise when people are lazy about tests in this way,
and it wastes a ton of peoples time. R

Remember every time one of these tests fails it sends an email, that I
must read (we don't yet have a way to put in the subject header its a
SOLR test fail versus a LUCENE one, or i'd filter the solr ones and
not be complaining as much).
