My interest in this stems from doing a bunch
of installations of a package which requires
editing quite a few files, tedious and error
prone.

I'd like the convenience of being able to define
the edits in a script.

I was trolling for a response like;
"I've been building this great package which
allows scripting common configuration tasks
in this really clever and simple way ..."

For some reason I got the idea cfengine required
Perl scripting. Upon researching it to improve
my question with a little more context
I find it's not Perl-centric, it's
very well documented and complete ...

Nevermind.

Thanks,
Kent
