I don't have experience with it but it looks a lot like Puppet which is what our Linux guy likes. And yes, you can do ANYTHING with Puppet, there are no limits... other than your time and willingness to code a bunch of shit. It is powerful and flexible in the same way that a pile of raw construction materials and tools are powerful and flexible. You can build what you want, but you have to do it and if you do it poorly, the results are poor.

That is like so much I see in the Linux world: If you have well trained admins with lots of time, you can use the tools to make a really slick solution... but if not you are in for a bad time.
