> Three things about the 1 minute it takes to decide if we want to balance or not:
>  - 1 minute is also the default socket timeout, so if you call "balancer" in the shell
you often get a SocketTimeoutException back. Bad user experience.
>  - Elliott was telling me that we might not even need 1 minute to compute a good balance
anyways because of other improvements. I tested 30 seconds on a badly balanced cluster and
it worked well.
>  - I personally think that 1 minute is too much time (Elliott disagrees).
