Alternatively, I'd like to somehow be able to specify a hierarchy of
host groups, and have cfengine choose the file at the lowest level for
which a  version of the file exists. This would be pretty easily done
using an external module. But, I'd prefer to avoid external modules for
now and I don't see how to manage such a hierarchy concisely using
cfengine scripts.

I wrote up the way I accomplish this just the other day, it does precisely
what you describe without external modules.

Please let me know if the documentation is confusing or unclear, either
via email or on the 'discussion' link on the wiki page itself.

I have developed an external script framework for customizing
certain files on hosts. I just documented this approach in
the discussion section of your document, here:

I really appreciate any comments on this.
