 Hah, to each his own.  I agree though, it does make sense to have it as a
 broctl.cfg option.

 You can do the preprocessor-like trick with the cluster framework.  It may
 make the most sense to just write out some "manager only" parts of the
 broctl-config file.  Like this:

 @if ( Cluster::local_node_type() == Cluster::MANAGER )

 I would rather avoid creating more autogenerated files if at all possible.
 Readability shouldn't be a problem anyway since the autogenerated scripts
 are never meant to be read by users anyway.
