That makes sense. Perhaps something that allows Rabbit to be
"rack-aware" (a la Cassandra) by identifying a
rack/facility/group/unit to a node when it's joined to the cluster,
then mirroring can ensure that the copies are spread across nodes in
different "units".

Just want to say thank you for giving us info on y'all's plans early
and being open to feedback.
