I am very glad that this feature ("cfs forcereintegrate") is finally in
place ;-)  It allows a user to be sure that there are no more updates
on a client that remain un-reintegrated with the servers. She may want
this probably because she want to shutdown the connection only after
all updates has been propagated to the servers, or even she may want to
re-initialize the client's RVM (re-initialization is rarely needed and
dangerous, it is needed only when the RVM get too insane).
