Well, at this point there is no tagging in Flare, so we can address  
that when the time comes - certainly it will leverage Solr for the  
heavy lifting.  As for faceting, I'm not sure what you mean... Solr  
supports faceting just fine, and Flare displays paints a pretty  
picture around it.  Can you propose a more concrete example of where  
you think something Flare does should be pushed back into Solr?   I'm  
all for that, and in fact we will certainly see both Solr and Flare  
evolve to work more cooperatively.
