I would like it if we made it possible to do, without explicitly requiring it, and one thought I had was to allow the searchLocations set for idp.home to be overridden in web.xml. So you don't really need to set idp.home there but if you have some embedded use case for driving the location there, you just tell it to search a different set of locations for the configuration.

Whether that is or isn't better for us down the road is TBD, but that's not a change we have to make now to allow people doing their own packaging to go down that road.

But for the archive, no, V3 installation no longer does any changing of XML files at install time, web.xml or otherwise. It's only property merging now.
