Let me rephrase that a bit and repeat, it's a good feature but there is
already a full plate for 0.4. If you want 0.4 to scale beyond one
machine then that's totally possible and not really difficult but the
code (and um, the second machine) doesn't exist. I feel that messing
around with URLs doesn't solve the lack of hardware or code and is sort
of rearranging deck chairs on the titanic. 0.3 has been a moving target
to replicate in 0.4 as it is.

If anyone is having problems getting an instance of rails up please just
mail here for solutions.

have fun,
