 This is a wishlist item:

 Making nALFS network aware. the one huge advantage it would have is that
 you can
 have one profile being run on a whole bunch of machines at once. Right now
 I
 create a profile, put it in CVS, run it locally. Login (console or ssh
 whatever
 works best) onto different machine, cvs up profiles, run the modified
 profile on
 that system. Login to yet another machine, repeat.

 Or:

 Make profile, select which machines it affects, run it, nALFS will connect
 to
 other machines and run them.

 This feature has been discussed a long time ago, something used to exist
 as a
 proof of concept but it's gone for the moment. Is there a chance you guys
 like
 this feature or will consider it for the future? If not, I'd better brush
 up on
 my network programming skills (and I got just the perfect book to teach me
 that
 too, if I can find the time).
