I didn't have much (any) luck adding it to solr, either by adding it to
WEB-INF/lib, or trying to setup a ContextHandler that would load the
jar.  (This is probably on me; I didn't find the documentation that easy
to follow.  Theoretically, it's possible.)

What did work right away is add /usr/share/java/tomcat-coyote.jar to
/etc/jetty/start.config.  However, this would mean a change to the jetty
package to have a tomcat6 JAR in its classpath - that seems odd.

I think maybe it would be better to spend some time and get solr working
with jetty8.  Also, solr-tomcat works fine with tomcat6-6.0.39
