I don't actually envision using Streamlined as-is, but rather being  
Streamlined-like.  Streamlined is very ActiveRecord dependent.  While  
I've yet to settle on exactly what Flare is, my current thinking is  
that it'll be a Rails plugin that becomes the "Streamlined of Solr".   
I think there will be more to it than just that, and being Rails- 
centric is not the goal, but rather one nice integration point to  
have.  I think what we build will be applicable to Camping and the  
next cool Ruby web framework too.

Currently I don't foresee using any other Rails plugins as Flare  
dependencies.  Though in a similar vein as Streamlined, we ought to  
roll in the acts_as_solr feature similar to the acts_as_ferret plugin.

Anyone out there integrating an ActiveRecord model and Solr/solrb?   
If so, would acts_as_solr make your life easier?
