Subject Re: solr ruby code update

I'm glad you like it so far, definitely some things to work out still but
I'm feeling pretty happy with it.

The pagination is real, not just a huge doc set using array cursors. The
library is converting :page and :per_page to "rows" and "start. You use it
by first querying, using the :page and :per_page params like:

result = solr.query(:page=>1, :per_page=>10, :q=>'*:*')
# or "search"
result ='ipod', :page=>1, :per_page=>10)

The result object now has methods that WillPaginate can hook into, namely:
current_page, total_pages, next_page and previous_page. With those methods,
the will_paginate view helper can create the pagination view widget. Of
course, the :page param would probably be dynamic; in Rails/Merb --

But you bring up a good point about where the pagination should be
"happening". Maybe instead of paginating the top-level "result", it'd be
more intuitive to do it on just a document set like:

result = solr.query(:page=>1, :per_page=>10, :q=>'*:*')
@docs = result.documents

<%= will_paginate(@docs) %>

What do you think?

Thanks for having a look and please do play with it when you get a chance!
