I personally never saw this actually happening, and not because of any
complexity issues with "getting started with SolrCloud", although I
think continuing improvements there are a good thing.

Many times, I see these two things conflated:
1) how easy it is to get SolrCloud set up
2) the inherent internal complexity of a system

We can always improve #1, but that does not imply improvement in #2
(and may actually increase internal complexity).

A system where you can just fire up a node pointed at a directory and
not worry about any shared state is very easy to understand, debug,
hack around, and build very complex custom systems around.
