I had already thought of writing such a program (Phython script), but I have not found the time yet. (Better said, I've been too lazy for that.)
Actually your Asteroid Belt Creator was a big influence when I decided to sit down and start this project. It is one of the only tools (I have found) that makes filling in empty systems very easy, so thank you for making it! I have used it a lot!
But I wanted a few more tools for SE and just didn't see any being made, probably because SE already generates things so well. So between this project and another I've got sitting on the shelf, I'll be busy for a while.
There are a few parameters you can modify right now, such as the number of planets, inclination, and eccentricity, and I want to add more control in the future, but it will probably have to wait until after SE .99 is released.
If possible, can you create a Dyson Ball Generation applet for SE? It is based on the input orbital values, and then generates a script for the Dyson ball system. Dyson balls can be made up of very small satellites.
