The agent bakery used to always create a so called Generic agent. That was
an agent with a default configuration.
Now the bakery per default creates two - possible identical - agents: The Vanilla-agent is
what had been the generic agent. It is an agent without any plugins and with the default
configuration. The Generic agent is an agent with all rulesets being applied that do
not have any positive restrictions. It is the agent for a generic host, i.e. a host that
has no tags and no name. All rules that do not require certain tags to be set or
do require the host to have a certain name are being used. This allows you to create a proper
agent without creating any host at the first place.
