That's definitely a good idea where it can work, but it won't work for
most of my cases.  One of the things I like the most about cfengine is how
easy it is to use it to classify my hosts; I definitely don't want to move
that classification outside of cfengine.

We need to begin adding error checking and/or error counting into
cfengine.  Without that, we're kind of stuck doing post-processing outside
of cfengine, which is a lot of extra work.
