wondering if something like this would work: Imagine 3 node cluster, and create them using:
For the 3 nodes: `num_token: 4` Node 1: `intial_token: -9223372036854775808, -4611686018427387905,
-2, 4611686018427387901` Node 2: `intial_token: -7686143364045646507, -3074457345618258604,
1537228672809129299, 6148914691236517202` Node 3: `intial_token: -6148914691236517206, -1537228672809129303,
3074457345618258600, 7686143364045646503`  If you know the initial size of your cluster,
you can calculate the total number of tokens: number of nodes * vnodes and use the formula/python
code above to get the tokens. Then use the first token for the first node, move to the second
node, use the second token and repeat. In my case there is a total of 12 tokens (3 nodes,
4 tokens each) ``` >>> number_of_tokens = 12 >>> [str(((2**64 / number_of_tokens)
* i) - 2**63) for i in range(number_of_tokens)] ['-9223372036854775808', '-7686143364045646507',
'-6148914691236517206', '-4611686018427387905', '-3074457345618258604', '-1537228672809129303',
'-2', '1537228672809129299', '3074457345618258600', '4611686018427387901', '6148914691236517202',
'7686143364045646503'] ``` Using manual initial_token (your idea), how could i add a new node
to a long running cluster (the procedure)?
```
