There are potentially many such nodes, and Anna will be interacting
with some of them; I don't think we can make too many assumptions
about what the UI working implies.

I don't think we necessarily need to do anything here other than make
sure the system is a) well documented and b) Anna has all the normal
sysadmin access to the infrastructure. Her needs can be met by us
getting out of the way gracefully; at least in the short term.
