That isn't great, becuase there are more differences in optimal 
solrconfig.xml between master and slave than just the replication 
handler difference, which that URL covers.

A master (which won't be queried against) doesn't need spellcheck 
running after commits, but the slave does. A master doesn't need slow 
newsearcher/firstsearcher query warm-ups, but the slave does. The master 
may be better with different (lower) cache settings, since it won't be 
used to service live queries.

The documentation clearly suggests it _ought_ to be possible to tell a 
core the name of it's config file (default solrconfig.xml) to be 
something other than solrconfig.xml -- but I havent' been able to make 
it work, and find the lack of any errors in the log file when it's not 
working to be frustrating.

Has anyone actually done this? Can anyone confirm that it's even 
possible, and the documentation isn't just taking me for a ride?
