collecting files from remote servers

I'm using cfengine to deploy an IDS/file integrity checker (samhain) to our
servers.  This roll out requires a series of steps:

1) copy files from the master server to the clients
2) run some configuration stuff on the client
3) copy one file from the client back to the master server.

The third step is where I'm having problems.  As far as I can see, there is
no way to push a local file to a remote server short of resorting to a
shell command like scp or rsync. 

The closest I've come to a solution so far is to call cfrun on the local
client and use -D<some special class> to execute cfagent on the master
server.  

I was hoping someone on the list had come up with a better way to do this.
