I'm using cfengine not as a means to converge  many diverse systems to
one Ideal  Functional State, but  to  painlessly install and update  a
bunch  of identical, dumb,  kiosk-type units.  So  killing X is a nice
single-function action that I'd like to perform remotely; passwordless
ssh would work except that I already HAVE cfengine.
