I don't understand ... is that in reference to my remark about overrides
and how they are useful to modify a standard set of configs ? When you
override, you still specify the desired state; and syntactically it's
not 'one-off' - it's just useful when you have to deal with sth that is
the same across most machines, and you need a way to tweak that config
for a few machines that need some small changes.
