There shouldn't be any problem, as long as you take care of
- the correct file modes (probably using "file-modes")
- the classes, you are using -- I personally tend to use "DEFAULT" or similar
classes, that would catch to many hosts, in cases where I know, that my
scripts only copy it onto the relevant hosts.
AFAIK Henning Glawe just does "fcopy -r" in one of his scripts, so it does work!
