As the author of a book about Solr, I'm sure you already know these
things. For everyone else:

The qt parameter only gets used if the handleSelect value on the request
dispatcher configuration is true. When that is set, it chooses a request
handler by name. This configuration value defaults to false since version
3.6, so that you can't use the /select handler to do other things, like
/update.

The q.alt parameter is applicable only to the dismax and edismax query
parsers, and specifies the query to send to the standard query parser if
the q parameter is blank or missing. It's most often defined as *:* to get
all docs. The *:* value doesn't have any special meaning to the dismax
parser.

Thanks,
Shawn
