I feel like I am missing something, is there a tool that will generate IdP
metadata from a Shibboleth IdP instance?

I found the sample metadata very helpful in terms of starting from scratch
with an installation and no prior experience with SAML.  All the keys are
put in the right places and all the URLs defined.  And it was clear from
the warning at the top that it wasn't a configuration file.  So I hope you
keep it in some form.
