Title: Default roles for new chef clients?
I'm just getting started with chef and trying to figure out how it will fit into our infrastructure.  Currently I have things set up so that when a new box is created, chef is installed and the client is started with the master server configured.  I'd like to use chef to do some further bootstrapping of the server (e.g. set default firewall rules, add users and copy their keys, install some packages).  My question is, is there a way for me to specify a default role for new clients that would have the recipes for these tasks configured?

Is this reasonable? Appropriate? Any solutions, ideas, or other comments appreciated.
