Subject Re: Multi-process setup

connectors.xml only applies to the Quick Start.  All connectors are
registered every time you run the process.  For a multiprocess setup,
there is no single process this should occur on, and furthermore, it
is more technically correct to register a connector only once.  Some
of the steps of registration (e.g. creating database tables) can be
stateful and fairly expensive and the QuickStart is thus a compromise.
