Just note that I didn't not do it out of laziness.  Actually pushing stuff
into the module isn't easy since there isn't much that can be saved from
contrib, and Solr's spatial code are predominately bound to function
queries, which themselves are very coupled to Solr and that there wasn't
anything like a consensus that they should be moved.
