FWIW, "documents as hashes" was something that Dave Balmain and I
discussed at length on the Ferret list and found ourselves in
complete agreement about.

You are kind. The funny thing is, I know very little about Solr.
(I'm an accidental legacy subscriber to this list.) I didn't even
realize it had a "schema" package until I was preparing to post and
The KinoSearch::Schema class was actually inspired by the raft of
object-relational mappers on CPAN: Class::DBI (by Tony Bowden, a
primary developer of Plucene), DBIx::Class, etc. I thought of it as
and ORM without the underlying SQL table definition.
If there is convergence between KS and Solr on this issue, though, I
wouldn't be surprised.
