That's an option, but it is a little tricky.  We'd have to be sure to

ssh will refuse to look at a key unless it's user_home_ssh_t.

for machine in foo bar baz blah; do
  scp policy.15 $machine:

You could also have a polling model or something where the machines
check for updates from the central server.  I don't see what's wrong
with push though...
