Subject Re: Restarting Algorithm Pattern

Rather than use voteToHalt, you could add an Aggregator that kept track 
of the "alive vertices" and then you can use an Aggregator to store/set 
your configuration value that the Master computation can modify.  Do the 
logic in the Master computation and all should be well.
