It's not even in alpha yet, but radwind might be the thing down the road 
(https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/radmind-devel).  It's an 
offshoot from the radmind project 
(http://rsug.itd.umich.edu/software/radmind/), which I've been using for 
a few years to maintain OS X labs.  It works just as you 
describe--client checks a local file listing all of the items it should 
have against what it actually has, then pulls files from a server as 
needed or erases extra files.
