Netty has been discussed as a replacement for the Servlet API, as one
pathway towards Solr becoming a standalone application.  I'm pretty sure
that the general thinking within the project is to keep using HTTP (that
is one of the protocols that Netty implements) but the hope is that it
would be more efficient than a servlet container.  There is a lot of
evidence that Netty implements network communication much more
efficiently than other libraries.

If you have the experience to do work like that, user contributions are
always welcome.
