Mark has hit the nail on the head. We must start with the features which are
most relevant to our current set of users. Realtime Search is a need for
many. Cloud computing cluster having hundreds of servers is a niche area
limited to few (and they already have their systems in place without Solr).
Any efforts of integration must keep in mind our users and their needs.

Most Solr deployments have around 1-25 servers. We must start with that
use-case keeping in mind the grander goal. We should not be focusing on
building something that the developers want to build and use two years down
the line.
