I'll try this.  HH backs up because nodes are failing.  I haven't read the
code, but why should HH suck CPU?  As I understand it, there's nothing to
hand off until the destination comes back up, and Gossip should tell us
that, no?  In the interim, it's just a cache of writes waiting to be sent.

Is there some way to tell the system "Just stop caring, I'm just writing,
let's worry about leveling out when I get around to wanting to read?"
