I had changed it to a solr.StrField in the branch to support facets on
the fields. Facets don't work as expected if the field is tokenized
(You get facets for "Region" and "A", not "Region A".
I did my tests with the new schema.

I merged the branch to default already so Stefan can work on the
ticket that depends on #64. And the url you posted works in firefox too

But the url you give does not work with solrpy. It works in Firefox.
Firefox convertes the %22 entities to " before it sends the request. curl
will probably do the same. It does not work in solrpy.

I tested sunburnt last night (see the last commits) and purpose
to use it instead of solrpy (when trac is up again).
