FWIW, "documents as hashes" was something that Dave Balmain and I  
discussed at length on the Ferret list and found ourselves in  
complete agreement about.

You are kind.  The funny thing is, I know very little about Solr.   
(I'm an accidental legacy subscriber to this list.)  I didn't even  
realize it had a "schema" package until I was preparing to post and  
went researching.

The KinoSearch::Schema class was actually inspired by the raft of  
object-relational mappers on CPAN: Class::DBI (by Tony Bowden, a  
primary developer of Plucene), DBIx::Class, etc.  I thought of it as  
and ORM without the underlying SQL table definition.

If there is convergence between KS and Solr on this issue, though, I  
wouldn't be surprised.
