Oh, and I should add: there's currently no way to explicitly say which 
node you want the master to be, it will just be chosen from the nodes 
you provide. In practice this is not too relevant, since the master and 
slaves do almost exactly the same amount of work for a given queue; it's 
much more important to spread mirrors (i.e. masters + slaves) about than 
just masters.

Cheers, Simon
