reference guide isn't strictly about *Apache* Solr, it's about our distro of it.  So there
is just a little bit more than in the distro (like kstem, tomcat).  But then again, the Packt
book* has more than what's in Solr 1.4 too (localsolr, field collapsing).

It also has other things, though, too.  Like it comes w/ Tomcat and runs on a different port.

I guess as long as our policy is that everyone who has a book/ref guide (which was stated
back in the Packt discussion) gets added (assuming they submit a patch) then I have no objections.
 I do worry that people will start asking questions about LucidWorks on solr-user@, which
I'm not sure is appropriate, so we should monitor that fairly carefully.

Also, that left hand column is going to start getting cluttered once you add in Lucid's Ref
Guide and presumably Otis and Shalin's Solr In Action.  So then people will start saying "why
can't my book be on top..."

 I think it may also be worth, with all the books, noting that the ASF/Solr community makes
no endorsements about any of the 3rd party guides.
