      I've seen a fair number of users customizing solr.in.* scripts to make changes to their Solr installs. I think the documentation suggests this, though I haven't confirmed.

      One possible problem with this is that we might make changes in those scripts which such a user would want in their setup, but if they replace the script with the one in the new version, they will lose their customizations.

      I propose instead that we have the startup script look for and utilize a user customization script, in a similar manner to linux init scripts that look for /etc/default/packagename, but are able to function without it. I'm not entirely sure where the script should live or what it should be called. One idea is server/etc/userconfig.{sh,cmd} ... but I haven't put a lot of thought into it yet.

      If the internal behavior of our scripts is largely replaced by a small java app as detailed in SOLR-7043, then the same thing should apply there – have a config file for a user to specify settings, but work perfectly if that config file is absent.
