Using EM in this context would allow a single image to support both a
multi-host system and single host system. If that's possible I'd think
that would be better. I guess the question becomes if you have some way
to dynamically detect a multi-host system, that'd be better. If that's
not possible, then you might be stuck with a hardcoded file.
