With the DeltaManager, instead of it notifying all nodes when sessions get
established, is there a way for it to only share that single node's
sessions during a shutdown event of that particular node?  For example,
node 1 of 8 has 5 sessions on it.  When node 1 is shut down, only then will
it replicate those 5 sessions to the other 7 nodes...  This would reduce
the all-to-all traffic that would be occurring constantly but would put
more weight on a shutdown event... Also, another wrinkle, the shutdown port
is disabled in server.xml for security reasons.
