Thanks for all those pointers.  I'll look at cfengine-masterconf.

I said that with the intention being that until you roll cfengine 
out, the policy master will be the only machine where you're running 
cfengine, so I figured that any conf files you have would be 
copied to a safe place for easy replacement.  I'm thinking more 
in terms of a purely local cfengine deployment in a testing 
phase before rolling it out to other machines.  That way you can 
test out the copy, tidy, link, etc. basic processes to make 
sure they work as expected.

I would expect the policy master to be treat as a regular client.

<snip> - Wow - lots of good information.  Always learning...
