Yes, it's in, or you might want to factor it into a 
separate property file I guess to limit the "node-specific" content to 
just one property.

# May differ to direct SAML 2 artifact lookups to specific server nodes
#idp.artifact.endpointIndex = 2

(The reason it defaults to 2 is that the SAML 1 endpoint gets assigned "1" 
in the example metadata.)

With the newer RP config, you can certainly override this in the file, but 
by default it will be set based on the property.

I'm going to take a guess that you tried this and it didn't work, so 
there's probably a bug...
