[Bug-gnubg] Multiprocessing queries

I've been following the discussion about the multi-processing, and I thought 
I'd make a couple of comments, since I expect to make extensive use of it when 
it's ready.

I noticed there was some discussion of using hostnames rather than octal IP 
addresses. I'm on a DHCP network so the latter are liable to change.

Will the "master" be able to tell when new "slaves" are available? I am likely 
to be able to start a rollout, then later set up more processors when my 
colleagues go home.
Will it cope with slaves being switched off mid-operation? My colleagues are 
happy for me to use their PCs on the understanding that they are free to 
interrupt GnuBg without warning me.
