Of course, this is trivial. The only possibly unexpected side effect
is that the updated files don't get run until *next* cfengine
invocation - so you wait half and hour or something.

 copy:

  /masterfiles dest=/cfinputs server=master r=inf

This is necessary so that cfengine is always executing a consistent
configuratinon.
