That sounds great, but I would be inclined to go with the flow of the  
ruby community if you want your gem to fit into it. Just my opinion  
though--I've expressed it and now I won't say it again.

Well having a gem named solrb and a library named solr is confusing  
IMHO. I've done this myself in the past and regretted the  
inconsistency. But hey, I don't really care enough to try to convince
