(23) Unfortunately there's no augeas at all in CentOS 5.3 base
distribution.  We should really make support for Augeas completely
optional, since a lot of the time those aug_* commands won't be needed
by end users.

I don't have the stomach to make this change right now, since I'm
doing this on a green-screen terminal without even copy and paste
never mind such luxuries as the "WorldWideWeb" ...

I hacked around this for now, but noted the problem in the TODO file.
