Its more complex than this. Solr depends on some lucene contrib
modules, which apparently have no backwards-compatibility policy.

I don't think we want to have to suddenly treat all these contrib
modules like core lucene with regards to backwards compat, some of
them haven't reached that level of maturity yet.

On the other hand, exposing contrib's functionality via Solr is a
great way to get more real users and devs giving feedback and
improvements to help them mature.

But we need to work on how to handle some of this: I suppose spatial
is the worst case (don't really know), where Solr has a dependency on
a Lucene contrib specifically labelled as experimental.
