Agreed.  Solr's focus is in indexing "Structured Data".  The support for
dynamic fields certainly allows you do deal with complex structured data,
and somewhat heterogeneous structured data -- but it's still structured
data.  If your goal is to do a lot of crawling of disparat physical
documents, extract the text, and build a "path,title,content" index
then Nutch is probably your best bet.
