Not what I meant at all - that *is* silly  ;) If I invoke cfagent with
-D SPECIAL it will not go through its normal routine but only look for
"special" classes.   If I don't  hand-define  anything beyond SPECIAL,
cfagent should do nothing.  I have a  web interface which lets me kill
X on any of my kiosks, at the press of a  button, since they're spread
out over  three buildings   this is the    closest I  can come   to  a
ctrl-alt-backspace... it's  always  and  only manual,  done frequently
enough that it's nice to have a three-finger-salute at my disposal.
