I'm impressed :-)

I had a look at Puppet early this year, planning to migrate to it from 
existing Bcfg2 set up.  There is a lot of good documentation, but there 
seemed to be a lot of options and it was not clear to me what the best 
path forward was. Reading a copy of Pro Puppet cleared things up, but I 
was still estimating the migration to take at least a week or two, with 
some hard thinking about relationships and structures.
