yeah I used that in an expect script to down many at once. Not very reliable

yeah sure but I dont like it because:

1) I like to keep my conserver.cf files in sync between my 6 conservers
   which means I have a cron to do that.

2) I believe it's a maintenance task, which should be handled by 'console'
   it'd be kind of cool to be able to 'console -u' to check nobody's
   connected to some consoles, then 'console --down <list of consoles>'.
   I mean there's a mechanism for downing a console. Why not one for many?

thanks for your time
