In that case, being able to use Accept headers and conditional GET's
would make them more powerful and easier to use.  The Accept header
could be used, if present, otherwise use the query parameter.  Or, vice
versa.  Also, conditional GET's are a big win when you know the data and
results are not changing often.

Solr's APIs are described as "REST-like", and probably do qualify as
"restful" the way the term is commonly used.

I'm personally much more interested in making our APIs more powerful
and easier to use, regardless of any REST purity tests.
