Node Cluster

I saw a Tweet in which Ryan Dahl mentioned this commit to Node:
introduce node cluster, 87339a2.
It adds a command line option to run a script using multiple processes.
The obvious criticism of this is it's possible to build this at a higher
level, but I agree with Daniel Ennis' comment on the commit:

Node 0.5.9 and 0.6

Node 0.5.9 has been released, and Node
0.6

is getting close. This means 0.6 will be the new stable branch, and Ryan
recommended testing modules against 0.5.9.

I apologize that it's taken so long to reach a new stable release - porting to Windows took longer than expected. In the future we will try to keep dev/stable cycles to 6 weeks.

I thought this was a very humble statement given the herculean effort
that's been put into Windows support. I'm looking forward to 0.6!
