What happens in the case that the network stuff isn't up when smolt runs
during startup?  Did it end up being able to wait for the network and
queue it for later?  I'm a little surprised that the number of units
that we have is as small as it is, and how few of them are laptops.  Or
maybe it's just that our support for laptops is so bad that no one is
bothering anymore. :)

Would be nice to move smolt out of just the firstboot and do some user
surveys as well, but I guess we haven't speced that out and haven't had
time to do the work to make that happen.
