Subject Re: Seeds and AutoBoostrap

If you need to add a new seed node, you should autobootstrap it first,
then afterwards change it to a seed.  The only point of being a seed
is for *other* nodes after all.

getting any work to it? I mean, if it doesn't start with moving some data to itself, it will
have to wait until new data comes in and is determined to live on that new node.
