There's already some support for that, in a way.  The runners with queues
already employ an algorithm to safely split the queue space up into 2^n
separate runners without the need for locking.  They do of course have to have
access to the same directory (e.g. over NFS).  Also, now that MM3 is backed by
SQL, the use of a client/server db like PostgreSQL eliminates another
co-location bottleneck.  I wouldn't say this latter is thoroughly fleshed out,
and I'm not even sure there's a compelling use case, but it may indeed be
