hi andrew,

as i have had already done some work in this area, maybe i can help you.

i would had answered your mail (regarding the new provisioning-backend 
script in the
latest git-version [works good]) a little bit earlier,
but my systems were down the last two days  because of heavy rain and
partial flood in our city.
