I think it's great, and I think it should be extended to allow for a
single http server on say a central management server, then there's no
distribution issues (this was the original intention with ccsd eons ago,
but no one else liked the central config server so it was abandoned,
leaving shared devices and local files.  Shared devices were abandoned
next and then the came the big wrong turn of trying to sync the local
files.)
