As we move things into our private cloud instance we need a provisioning 
system that:
  1. doesn't have a bunch of painful dependencies that go on every system 
  2. doesn't require us to provision our systems before we provision our 
  3. doesn't require some other other daemon or cron job running on the 
systems to maintain them

If it can take care of the needs we have I would certainly like to replace 
puppet. I do not speak for everyone work on the infrastructure team, but I 
am working on it as if our goal is replacement.
