Thank you for your input.  Turns out it's probably not an issue right
now anyways because my understanding is that there is no "live" upgrade
path from 4.3/7.x to 4.4/8.x.  My understanding is that the only upgrade
path is a re-install.  If that's the case, then I suspect it will be a
VERY long time until I upgrade, because I'm on a single-host production
system so can't stage a reinstall the same way I can stage a "yum upgrade".

I guess only time will tell ;)

There wasn't a significant learning curve to python (as I've already had
experience with it, and most of what I needed to do was already in the
SDK examples).  Ansible is a tool I have never even looked at, let alone
tried to use it, so I suspect it would take me more than a couple hours
to get it working.
