As I understand it, once the host list is randomized, having a single,
networked lock directory is pointless, isn't it? Just put a job limit on each
daemon, in case the random is not random enough, and it should work fine.

I think I remember that host list randomization is a new feature though,
probably not present in 2.16, which the original poster is using.
