Yup, I'm looking somewhat into options like that, but the problem is
that if *any* of the client is dynamically linked, you've got to make
much more of an OS installed becore you can restore.  It basically means
that the best you can do is jumpstart a minimum install onto the
machine, copy the client on and restore, instead of just being able to
plug in your bare-metal-recovery CD and boot the machine.

Until it comes to bare-metal recovery, yeah.  :)
