For those that haven't yet dug into all that is Broker, this brings up a
question on the general architecture. Are there still parent/child
processes handling comms/work?  I'd assume the fork is gone, so the new
code is dropping a process but gaining a thread, in essence a wash.

Is there a mechanism today for per node type tuneables?
