Different types of replication policies are on the todo list. We 
agonised about this for quite some time during development, and in the 
end decided to ship with just the two policies - 'all' is as simple as 
it gets and 'nodes' gives you ultimate flexibility.

We seek input from the community and what policies they'd like to see, 
and how exactly they should work. E.g. in the above "replication factor" 
policy, how are the nodes a queue gets replicated to chosen? what 
happens when there are fewer nodes than the policy dictates? etc. etc.
