Right, the only actively developed Solr client is really Solrj.  All other ones are not well
maintained - I don't recall seeing any patches for any of them in the recent months.  In other
words, if your Python client offers everything (and more) that the reptile client in Solr's
repo offers, that smells like a potential contribution, should you feel like it.
