Add Node Configuration Changes to DBNEWS
Adding node configuration changes to DBNEWS would allow client applications to dynamic update requests.
I want to redirect my application to the TIMEAV test node and the TIMEAV test node gets updated. My application is currently still asking for data from the original test node.

Beau, Charlie and I briefly discussed this and we feel there should be an update to the DBNEWS protocol. Not just to add this feature that Beau needs but to also update the traditional report format so it's more informative. Adding a new message is fairly disruptive because all client libraries need to recognize the new message -- even if they're going to ignore them. We should take advantage of this effort so DBNEWS broadcasts more thorough reports.
Are there any other database changes we ought to announce?
