It seems like you could easily establish with a copy command
a copy of any critical files that you want.
Just establish a backup area, and then copy from the remote clients,
to the central host a copy of things that are critical.
My goal is the same as yours, but I am taking a different tack.
I am looking at pam to give me access to a central database of
"critical information" via ldap.
So long as you have the critical information, you can copy it.
Getting package lists may require that you run a program and then
save the output and then copy that output.
