I was thinking about working on something like this but I just asked
the nutch list if anything like this existed.

Does it?  Is there anyway to configure lets say SOLR and nutch with a GUI util?

I remember back in the day configuring eggdrops and I was very happy
that everything was there to comment out if needed.  It made
understanding configuration easy.

What do the SOLR default configs look like right now?  Are there comments?
