no; you can propagate the database through other channels too
(e.g. cfengine).

I will not do this, because:

* I really hate programs which connect to the outside (aka "phoning
  home") without being configured to do this

* it will not work because network connections usually require
  additional site-local configurations (HTTPProxyServer)

Years ago, people complained that nobody would see the cronjob
messages because systems are not configured to deliver root mail to
a real user. So I made it as loud as possible.

Ok; it is trimmed down again to 'root' now...
