It is possible to get a FreeIPA installation so boogered up that it's
just not salvageable.  I'm pretty close to that right now.  The
replication model is really great but it replicates all my mistakes.

Maybe I'm just not smart enough, but I suspect others have wished they
could just throw in the towel and start over.  I would if it were
relatively easy, that is, if I could export and reimport users (ideally
with passwords), hosts, groups, hbac rules, etc.  I woudln't even mind
having to re-enroll them.
