Hi, creator of Yokozuna here.  I just want to make it clear that
Yokozuna does not use SolrCloud.  It uses regular old Solr and
Riak does the sharding & replication.  Yokozuna uses Solr’s
Distributed Search which is _not_ SolrCloud.  It uses Riak Core
coverage to build the query plan and feeds that into Solr’s
Distributed Search.
