I also think projects should try to minimize configuration options at
their minimum so operators are completely lost. Opening the sample
nova.conf and seeing 696 options is not what I would call user friendly.

And also having working default. I know it's hard, but we should really
try to think about that sometimes.

Sorry to hijack the thread a bit.
