|Help with cfengine architecture

Hi cfengine users,
I need your advice.
I’m a veteran user of cfengine. When all
machines are the same there’s no problem with current cfengine config
method ,but when there are differences, I find myself mess with lots of
excludes. This leads to confusions.
I need to setup cfengine in new site and this time I would
like to achieve the following in order to overcome the problem above:
There will be hierarchical tree which include all possible
options for matching machines. The top level is the site name , then os , os
version down to the machine name ( optional . The tree can stop in each level
according to relevant needs). Each level will also have “All” level
which include all machine in this level. For example:
Each level will include cfengine files. Their names will
identify their purpose. For example : cf.dns or cf.sendmail
Cfengine agent will be able to determine in which level the machine reside
and according to it import all relevant files.
I know that it might be possible to prepare some pre script
which identify all relevant files in the tree and prepare every time input file
for cfagent but any idea how to implement this without external script will be appreciated.
Also, you are welcome of course to comment on this method.
