wrapper around ssh (called sshauto) to loop over a set of machines and
execute a command on each machine. I specify regexes for machines names and
it queries DNS or hosts file. Its fairly clunky way of doing it but it

ideas in mind, but I'd like to hear what other folks have been doing in
practice before I commit to any one process.
