That's sort of the direction I'm headed.
My real world problem set ATM is this:
o Nearly 100 servers, and growing fast due to virtual machines
o I'm still implementing LDAP authentication across them all
o adduser and the like not needed, auto create home directories on first login.
o removing user home directories will become a problem eventually
o Recently added ldap replication, need to add this new server the ldap.conf files
o Recently added a local yum repository, need to fix the yum repository files
o want modified standard config files like ntp.conf, /etc/profile.d/colorls.sh for instance
