It's not different than having to specify what NFS file systems to mount
or where the LDAP server is. If you have 1000 workstations, you do not
configure them individually, but either install them from one master
image (possibly even every day, like in the case of publicly accessible
university machines), or have some central configuration/management
system (like Quattor).
