I think it's interesting seeing the difference. The system at CNET 
obviously needed to fail gracefully before it needed to fail fast. I 
have the luxury of a dev environment and fail-fast is exactly the kinda 
thing I want so I know about as many limitations and problems as soon as 

Having this behavior toggled would be idea. Version the solrconfig.xml 
between a fail-graceful for your production branch and a fail-fast for 
your dev branch.
