Distributed indexes and/or access to configuration file?

Technically, what you want to do is definitely possible -
although it won't be super easy. The flying-sphinx gem manages all
the requests to the API, including uploading a configuration file -
so, if you look at the source for that, you can upload your own
file containing whatever you like.
This means you'll need to manage a few things yourself:
The contents of that file - particularly, file paths.
The code that uploads it - re-use what you can from the
A rake task for uploading and indexing, as the default one will
overwrite with a standard Thinking Sphinx-built file.
