I saw the operations page, but didn't get what I was looking for. What  
I meant by my earlier statement was that it is not clear to me who  
assigns the token to a new node; if a node goes down, and another  
process comes up, is (a) the token assigned to it automatically by  
consensus (and the bootstrap process gives it a place in the ring  
where it needs most load balancing), or, (b) it is an external  
script's responsibility to bootstrap every node with a new initialtoken?
