@faho it's amazing and also dates back to like 2010, before we finally managed to agree that master/slave terminology is bad

i've also just been reminded that when the emperor exits, it logs something very ominous about slaughtering vassals

> Broodlord (taken from Starcraft, like Zerg mode mode) is a way for a vassal to ask for β€œreinforcements” to the Emperor.

uWSGI also doesn't have leader elections, it has Legions, "groups of nodes constantly fighting for domination". The node with the highest Valor is the Lord of the Legion.
