The enabled checkbox allows you to take an agent out of service
without deleting it from the master or just shutting it down with no

I'm not opposed to removing it (it does simplify matters) but it's a
change in behavior that needs to be considered.  I'm in the habit of
disabling an agent, watching the logs to make sure it finished the
last thing it was asked to do, and then shutting it down.  If I don't
have that option, how do I safely re-start or upgrade an agent?

I like Brett's suggestion to ask the agent to tell you about itself
rather than have users enter info on the master that may not actually
match the agent.
