Consider another use-case that might inform a wider view: if I've got
a cluster running with a fixed cookie, and I want to rotate that
cookie (maybe in place, maybe as I bring new nodes into the cluster
and retire old ones), how do I do that?

Could the way that Erlang uses cookies be simplified (yet generalised)
to handle both use cases? Is there a larger story hiding under all
