However, I do think we should fairly soon roll in a "acts_as_solr"  
ActiveRecord hook.  I don't personally use ActiveRecord in this way,  
but it would be a huge draw for many.  And its not all that hard to  
implement.  Though field naming conventions are tricky... should the  
Solr schema.xml be generic enough to adapt to any model?  Or should  
the schema be more rigidly defined towards a specific model?

Jump on in!

This was a just a quick off-the-cuff idea.  How we tie Solr to a Ruby  
object model is the trick that I've not yet experienced a clean  
solution for.

My work with Flare is going to lead to some UI-centric DSL stuff,  
very much like Streamlined.  And that will in turn have some  
direction for the underlying solrb layer as well.
