Sounds pretty cool! However, can it also be used in a non-cloudish way?
Due to my high amount of computers, I find myself re-installing stuff a
few times a year. I basically need the same set of software on each
computer - when I'm trying out new distributions, it would be stupid to
create install scripts prior installation. So I'm looking for a way to
define a basic set of applications which will then be installed on each
reinstall. Your tool sounds as if it could do something like that.

Thanks for any information,
