 The caching of data from the network does not have to be external
 to cfengine. You can in fact look at ldap and then if ldap does
 not work, use an alternative. It does not have to be between
 CFengine and the network. CFengine just has to have a plan
 for what to do when the network process fails.

 And that failure is in itself information that CFengine should 
 work with as data.
