Just to clarify, I was thinking about a scenario/disaster where we lost the
entire cluster and had to rebuild from backups.  I assumed we would start
each node with the backed up data and commit log directories already there
and with auto_bootstrap=false, and I also hoped that we could do all nodes
at once, since they each already had their data.  Is that wrong?  If so,
how would you handle such a situation?
