Thanks, Simon. I will dig into this feature on 3.1.

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
