OK, this simplifies things greatly.  For C#, the proper culture setting for
interaction with Solr should be Invariant.

Basically, the primary requirement for Solrsharp is to be
"culturally-consistent" with the targeted Solr server to ensure proper
data-type formatting.  Since Solr is culturally-agnostic, Solrsharp should
be so as well.

Thanks for the clarification.
