We should compare index write and search performance with the internal full text index, provide some guidance around when to use either one, and examine whether we can use the solr index for the kind of low latency query slicing that we have been doing with the internal index. To support this:
@mikepersonick: Work with @michaelschmidt to define sample queries against some data set, including some that slice the full text search results in order to manage the output cardinality of the query.
@michaelscmidt: Compare performance of the two approaches and provide some recommendations.
This can be moved to a new ticket if that is preferable.
