if ExtractingRequestHandler would make more sense as an extractingUpdateProcessor -- where
it could be configured to take take either binary fields (or string fields containing URLs)
out of the Documents, parse them with tika, and add the various XPath matching hunks of text
back into the document as new fields.

It probably could, but am not sure how it works in a processor chain.  However, I'm not sure
I understand how they work all that much either.  I also plan on adding, BTW, a SolrJ client
for Tika that does the extraction on the client.  In many cases, the ExtrReqHandler is really
only designed for lighter weight extraction cases, as one would simply not want to send that
much rich content over the wire.
