To some extent, but that's not really the point.  It's maintaining the
setup, which presumably you want to do with cfengine, and realizing
that you suddenly have to jump through hoops in the first place after
a cfengine update.  Doubtless others have more control, but consider
inheriting a heterogeneous network of boxes (at least three versions
just of Solaris, at random patch levels) that may be switched off for
long periods, can't be updated at arbitrary times, may not have enough
space in / to install much extra, so that /usr/local must shared, &c;
then there is a non-trivial problem in my experience.
