It seems to me that you could start by developing the fundamental
mechanisms based on distributing an exact image of a hard drive --
every client machine would get an identical image.  IP addresses,
are managed through dhpcd...

Near as I can tell, this is all that the extreme linux folks need.

Yeah, we do have to solve the config management issue, but there's
no reason to make everybody wait on that.
