I have to send you a general thank you for your dedication to the 
quality of this project, and for your amazing ability to seemingly keep 
the entire design for Lucene in your head at all times.

I'm not sure what exactly you want to die here, or what you think would 
be the best option for me, the Solr end-user.  Is BloomFilter something 
that's not worth pursuing, or would you just like it to be integrated in 
a different way?
