Awesome to hear.  I was beginning to wonder if you had succeeded or
given up.

I just wonder what problems you will have in the future with adding or
removing users.  Maybe someone out here has a suggestion to writing a
cron or how to use rsync to keep those files updating automagically
without you having to copy those files out to 5 servers everytime you
change/add/remove a user.

Now I hope you documented this all for the next upgrade :-)

Thanks for not giving up!
