of any special requirements there. However, we have used this

That is correct. It uses Solr 1.4, but as it meeds the requirements
for many sites, and is now a well-tested piece of software for us,
we have not felt it necessary to move in some cases. For others,
we have been moving away from this package to get newer versions
of Solr, or to use the Lucid distribution of Solr.

So, all in all, using the OS package for Solr + Tomcat still makes
sense, especially for new users, IMHO.
