This weekend :)   I have imported more data than my hacked  
implementation can handle without bumping up Jetty's JVM heap size,  
so I'm now at the point where it is necessary for me to start using  
the LRUCache.  Though I have already refactored to use OpenBitSet  
instead of BitSet.

The best way for Solr to get this functionality is for those that  
have implemented it in a custom fashion to get together and  
generalize it, so that we have a proven architecture that is  
configurable enough to handle real world situations.  My  
implementation is still being ironed out.  And it does rely on custom  
request handlers to utilize the facets and return back the counts per
