help-cfengine/bug-cfengine are places where features can be
suggested (but not necessarily accepted).

I don't understand the problem you mention. The only difference between
pushing and pulling as far as a host is concerned is perhaps a half hour
(a difference of scheduling). But pushing would break with fundamental
principles of freedom and security. Not sure what version you are
using, but I don't see why you can't just use cfrun to effect
a change immediately if you need to.
