Subject Re: Introducing Solrstrap: A blazing fast tool for querying Solr in a Googleish fashion

Thanks for the great feedback. It fills me with joy to know that another
human being has chosen to use Solrstrap

1) I have added a couple more CONST variables to the code to allow the
implementer to specify the names of the hit body and hit title
(re: exampledocs/*.xml)

2) In order to pass a full document to the hit-template you could simply to
this:

    rs.append(hitTemplate({doc: result.response.docs[i]}));

and then change the hit template so that it references each hit as "doc"
and subfields thereof {{doc.somefield}}

    <script id="hit-template" type="text/x-handlebars-template">
    <div class="entry">
    <b>{{doc.title}}</b><br>
    {{doc.text}}
    {{doc.metadata}}
    </div>
    </script>

3) As for the license- I take your ribbing in the spirit in which it was
intended :) Seriously though- this is my first open source contribution, so
I haven't given licensing a lot of though. What would a more appropriate
license be?
