Getting rid of the artificial separation between cman and ccs was
definately one of the motivations.  The other big one was to separate
basic cluster.conf queries from the remote update/syncing mechanisms.
I'd like to see a completely new (and simple!) method of updating/syncing
cluster.conf files around the cluster, that's completely separate from the
code that supports cluster.conf queries.

I think we should get this last bit done before investing too much time in
the apps... just in case this transition to openais involves more change
than we anticipate.

Thanks for tackling all this, it's looking great.
