Yes this would be possible - LCFG doesn't care what the agents actually

host's profile (Yes it's scary). In theory you could also use it do
things like create and start/stop UML images that in turn used
LCFG/OneSiS inside the images.
We've had experimental versions running on Windows and OS X too.
Don't get me wrong, it's no silver bullet though. It has its flaws.
