As for tagging, it's not as simple as just adding tags to Solr.  A  
tag (generally) belongs to a user, so where does the user name come  
from?  Solr can't be responsible for that, though it would clearly  
become a field that you'd want in Solr.

As for Collex and Flare.  Flare is a distillation of the _ideas_ in  
Collex, but currently the two share nothing, not even solr-ruby.  The  
plan is to migrate pieces of Collex to Flare as we can.
