Not necessarily, but that depends entirely upon your environment. We
have a policy of "no privileged network positions" so we don't even
trust our "private networks". Someone at the data center could
inadvertently configure a switch port to suddenly join our VLAN or a
network plug might be incorrectly assigned, etc. So we don't want our
data flying around in a way that can be intercepted.

That would be great. Even poking-around in the Solr web UI doesn't
reveal that path because of all the javascript magic in the interface.

It's unreasonable to expect everyone to read source code in order to
learn how to use tools that don't require direct programming.

Let me take a step back and say that Solr in fact has great
documentation. There are evidently some things it lacks for the
uninitiated.

Thanks,
