[ros-users] launching all nodes in included launch file on specified machine

Hi Dan,

If you declare a machine tag as a default, it is only active for nodes
that are evaluated after it.  That enables the sort of behavior you
describe, I think.

In general, I want to redo the machine configuration (and am open to
others willing to contribute).   It's not nearly as powerful as it
needs to be.
