Hi Yonik,

yes, please - and thanks!

I'm again and again positively surprised how efficient and yet simple
SOLR's (and Lucene's) query and response language (incl. response
formats) is. Some things seem complex/difficult at first (like dismax or
function queries) but turn out to be simple/easy to use considering the
complexity of the problems they solve.
