Thanks for the help. I was just about to reply to my own question for
the benefit of future googlers when I noticed your response. :)

I actually got this working, much the way you suggest. The client is
python. I created a gist with the script I used for testing [1].

On the solr side my QueryComponent grabs the stream, uses
jzlib.ZInputStream to do the deflating, then translates the incoming
integers in the bitset (my solr schema.xml integer ids) to the lucene
ids and creates a docSetFilter with them.

Very relieved to get this working as it's the basis of a talk I'm
giving next week [2]. :-)
