I was just thinking about this last night ... Adding a really robust
faceting system that could use XML configuration from solrconfig, or
metadata docs specified at query time, or raw XML specified at query
time seems like it would make a good solid project -- and it wouldn't
neccessarily require getting deep and dirty into the Solr guts -- it's
something that could be done just using the public methods for plugins.
