it will be great to have it in just one place. if it is in two places it is going to be hard to figure out which is latest and correct.
That's me. I understand that it can be painful to update.
However I would say that a project of the size and popularity of Cassandra deserves a dedicated configuration documentation. Also the Wiki format allows you to make links to other pages which obviously becomes non-clickable when translated to XML. It allows you to add pictures too which I plan to do to link the config parameters to an architecture documentation (wiki).
As per porting the wiki to 0.5, I volunteer to update the page (or create a 0.5 version of that page);
what do you think?

Someone has been industriously improving the documentation of the
config file settings on the wiki. I'd rather move that into the
config file itself though rather than have it get out of date when we
update things. (E.g. moving from 0.4 to 0.5 RSN.)
I'd appreciate it if you could submit a patch for the xml instead.
