Add and remove vast number of deployment agents programatically. 


Some customers may have vast number of publishing agents that are in multiple data centers. Even these agents are non-essential, running deployment with vast number of publishing agents in maintenance will cause problem because these agents may be unstable and up and down a few times during the maintenance.
