File Sync - TMS Controls, ability to monitor and sync CFG files

When you have a larger Tealeaf system (>5 servers), juggling and keeping track of multiple configs, privacy, etc can be a daunting task.  Rolling them out can be even more so.  Let's say you want to roll out a new Privacy.cfg file for all your servers?  Or one of the files is out of sync for some reason?

I propose a new function of TMS that can sync and monitor DIFFs of files we set.  One time we can say which file on which servers should be "watched".  One is a the "master" and the others are "clones".  TMS will periodically check the files on the servers and see if DIFFs, size and DateMod.  The watch would have two modes: Alert or Auto-Clone.  If Auto-Clone, then it will just propagate the new file across all the servers.  If Alert, it will flag a DIFF alert to the Alert tab, maybe a red number showing there is a value in the tab (like Facebook).  Alert we'd use if we need to be careful about rolling services, like Canisters.  Auto-Clone might be fine for Privacy.cfg, etc.  Then we can go into TMS and schedule our service rolls on each server (Transport service for example).

NOTE: Need this BADLY for PCAs as well!!!  PLEASE PLEASE be able to sync privacy.cfg across all the PCAs!!
