Yes, true but it has served me well, i.e. getting to know solr-ruby via

OK, without giving you all the secret :-). i.e. its a search site..I 
mean search is the main action everything else app wise is supporting
the search functions so to me it doesn't matter so much if flare is
plugin or an rails app. But making flare a plugin is a good thing makes
it more portable. 

Well as I mentioned earlier flare rails app have served me well. I have
left flare code i.e (browse_controller) as is, and started to build out the 
application instead i.e. users/login/settings/admin etc.. Actually I spent
quite a lot of time "feeding solr - i.e pusing XML for indexing". As you
might re-call my mail regarding Atom support.

There are couple of things that I miss from flare.. honestly i am not sure 
if i miss it from flare or solr. But I was planning on getting to it
once I solved my "solr feeding issue". Some of them are already in flares
roadmap as I can see .. but these are also "big discussion stuff" i.e tagging,
top-down faceting, "frequency based faceting" etc. In general I am trying to
do this but using solr/flare some stuff are possible as is but not all have a
look .. Now you know the secret :-) ha ha!
