What's in a Name
Grant was writing the javadocs for the code and needed an entry for the <title> tag and wrote out "Solr Content Extraction Library", since the contrib directory is named "extraction". This then lead to an "acronym": Solr CEL which then gets mashed to: Solr Cell. Hence, the project name is "Solr Cell". It's also appropriate because a Solar Cell's job is to convert the raw energy of the Sun to electricity, and this contrib's module is responsible for converting the "raw" content of a document to something usable by Solr. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_cell
