The chef-solr gem, which embeds Solr, is also one of the offenders. We wouldn't have a problem hosting the gem on S3 ourselves. The only issue I foresee is that many of our users are new to Ruby and its ecosystem, so I hope that the transition can be made as painless as possible for end users. 


Thanks,
