Commenting Files Managed via Cfengine

Hi Folks:

I have a large number of files that I'm managing via cfengine and over the two years that I've been using cfengine that number continues to grow. My coworkers are new to cfengine, and are struggling to understand which hosts, which files, etc cfengine is going to operate on. I've been documenting these issues as I confront them, but one idea that I would really like to incorporate is a comment automatically added to each file by cfengine to indicate master repository, path, classes, last update and a warning that cfengine will clean up after them whether they like it or not. Has anyone undertaken anything similar. Cfengine is an awesome piece of software that has made my life easier, but I now have more problems just trying to document how it works, organize date so that others can better understand, and explaining. I must confess that I often get lost in all of the mazes as well, so such efforts wouldn't be wasted on myself even if I understand cfengine fairly well.

Any other suggestions on how to take the already high level cfengine syntax and document it at an even higher level...
