Not only in our cfengine scripting, but the core itself.  It would be
nice to be able to include no concepts into the code quickly.

re: Cfengine 3

I guess this would be up to Mark.  Seems there was a stir over the shift
in development last month.  I have a deadline for releasing 5.0 of
SysNav.  Once that is out the door I want to get involved in the
community and development.  John Sechrest was fielding a lot of the
information gathering on where to take Cfengine development.  I owe him
a few more emails.

I think if we were to see something like this happen it would require a
dedicated group of skilled hackers.  Who are willing to commit a lot of
time and resources to the effort.

Personally I would attempt it in a separate project as an experiment to
see how everything fits together.

I will give it a read.
