fear you'll have lots of configuration work in this case.. (thought you can
generate this with a script, you'll need a config for each of the 50.000
servers..) why not just write a frontend that forwards the changes to the
destination server by the servers IP..? (which will be stored in the
directory i guess..) if you feel for it, you even might want to write a
web-base-admin tool..
