Uffe,

Yet again thanks very much. You haven't thought about making the rest of
AXD301 open source have you?!!! (Only joking I'm sure).

I am a bit concerned about the security of this mechanism. I'm not sure I
want the COOKIE known so that people can back door in with their nice free
downloaded erlang. It would also kick off a whole load of alarms when the
new node went down. Hmmm food for thought though.
