I know there has been a lot of discussion on distributed search...I am 
looking for a cross platform solution, which seems to kill solr's 
approach...Everyone seems to have implemented this, but only as 
proprietary would seem that just using the RMI searcher would 
allow a simple solution? Is this the case? Could you easily provide 
clustering and fail over using a variety of indexes and searching them 
all with RMI searcher? Is it all really that complicated? I have read 
that Lucene tops out at about 10m docs for a single server...I want to 
hit 100m. I have a beautiful app that allows realtime updating/searching 
(updates are rare but should be instant)...and I just want it to scale 
up to 100m docs or so . Is that going to be an really advanced project 
no matter how I slice it? I have done a lot of custom work with the 
lucene stuff so it would seem difficult to adapt it to Nutch (but what 
do I know Nutch) ... I have seen a lot of talk but not much on a simple 
RMI searcher solution...any idea?
