One other thing I didn't mention.  It is on my TODO list to add a way to allow
a slave backend to tell the master that it is going to sleep, so you could
shutdown the slave and have the master wake it back up again.  This is
primarily for combination FE/SBE machines, so the user can shutdown the
machine when done use the FE and have the master wake the slave back up if
necessary to record something new.
