So I've been working as the CTO of a company called Cleartrip for about a year. I've been trying to make "continuous deploys" work. One thing about this in the Java+Ruby environment we're using (not my call, pre-existing stack) is that packaging up these constant little incremental changes that have to be rolled put to 10s or 100s of servers is not trivial. 

It seems to me that it should be possible to build a secure Slime solution that "fans out" incremental changes to a whole (sub-)farms of servers. A CL library build on top of Slime that manages continuous deployment would be pretty awesome. 

Does it already exist?
