Hawkeye, at a fundamental level, is really just a way to extent your Condor 
machine ads.  So, the question "is it ready for the enterprise" is really, 
IMHO, just like asking "is Condor ready for the enterprise?", to which I'd 
have to answer "yes".

In re-reading through this thread, it looks like all you really want to do is 
add some custom attributes to your machine ads, right?  If so, then, yes, the 
Hawkeye mechanism is a perfect solution for your problem, and there are a 
good number of sites using it for the same purpose.
