Hi Radim,

The number of virtual nodes for each host would be configurable by the
user, in much the same way that initial_token is configurable now. A host
taking a larger number of virtual nodes (tokens) would have proportionately
more of the data. This is how we anticipate support for heterogeneity in
cluster hardware.
