And how many patches are you going to verify this way?  Pretty soon the
logon will take 15 minutes while the script is checking hundreds of
files.  Yes, it's doable, and I would have little trouble writing such a
script, but it's impractical.  Furthermore, it wouldn't even be
comprehensive here, because less than half the machines on campus
actually are logging in to the domain.
