        Just so we're all on the same wavelength, it seems to me that Nate
is talking about a cfengine-based distribution.  Since we're not likely to
get a large number of people working on it, we're best off basing it on
another like Debian or Fedora.  I guess I'd just like to see cfperl used
as well, because I often find myself needing the "users" section :).
