I'm looking into adding some form of distributed search to Solr.
The main problem I see with directly using ParallelMultiSearcher is a
lack of high availability features.

If the index is broken into multiple "shards" then we need multiple
copies of each shard, and some way of loadbalancing and failing over
amongst copies of shards.
