A minor detail: When recovering from netsplits in gproc, only unique names must be resolved so that there is only one (by definition of ‘unique’).

If you want to implement a global broadcast group, you would do that using ‘properties’, and they are simply merged after netsplit - there is no uniqueness constraint.
