Phase 1: Allow multiple master servers in master.cfg. Let
the clients poll them randomly.
Phase 2: Let the servers submit themselves to all of
them.
Phase 3: Let a master server poll the other master
servers on startup to fetch servers it missed while it was
offline.

All masters will be treaded equal in this setting.
Downside: it is not scalable to really many master
servers, but should be sufficient for three or five.

    Implemented all phase 1-2 in the code. Phase 3 has been
    replaced by the masters continuously broadcasting the servers
    to each other.
    Missing:
    - Master server configurability (port, exit delay and polling
    frequency)
    - Mechanism to get the list of master servers from the web
    - Get the servers running.
