Subject Re: Sorting by Unindexed Fields

Solr sorts on indexed fields only, currently.  And only a single value  
per document per sort field (careful with analyzed fields, and no  
multiValued fields).

Unwise and impossible - of course this depends on the scale you're  
speaking of.  How many documents?  What types of fields?   How small  
is fairly small number of fields?
