cluster: send suicide message on disconnect #3720
@jasnell suicide is definitely problematic... so is Master / Worker and a handful of other Nouns / Verbs throughout the codebase.
As mentioned, changing any of those would be an obvious semver major... it would also require a lot of churn in the ecosystem.
That being said, I think that the benefits to our ethics / ethos / community outweighs the potential technical debt.
If people are open to it we can open an issue to discuss this further.
