To greatly reduce this window, take a "snapshot" of the index (do it
like snapshooter, or actually use that script) and rsync from that
snapshot instead.

To completely remove the window of inconsistency, comment out the
post-commit hook in solrconfig.xml that takes a snapshot, then send a
commit to get a new snapshot and rsync from that.
