I disagree.  Those don't belong in core, and though they are all great
features, adding them to core constitutes "bloat", IMO.

The Query class belongs in core.  All those other modules should be
distributed as plugins, which could be used by Solr, Katta, Lucene, whatever.

Note that this is orthogonal to whether Solr and Lucene merge or diverge.
