Copying from server=$(variable)

Originally, I setup all my systems to have their update.conf do "local" copies 
from master files made available by NFS.  For various reasons I am now moving 
to doing cfengine network copies from the NFS server.

My problem is the server itself.  I would rather do local file copies there; 
It seems to have trouble copying files from itself, and even if it didn't I 
would still rather use local copies to help me recover from things like a 
corrupt cfservd.  

Anyway, the upshot is that I would like to be able to continue using the same 
update.conf on my server as on my clients.  My update.conf has a couple dozen 
copy stanzas, and I would rather not maintain two copies that are identical 
except that one copy is missing all the 'server=$(policyhost)' lines.

Is anybody else dealing with this? Is there a way I can force local copies 
(and in effect, ignore the server= lines)?
