Couple thoughts.  First, you don't need to separate them by bank if  
this isn't necessitated by your disk setup.  You could run-all on a  
subset A at time A and a different subset at time B, all from the  
same bank.

Next, dirvish-runall doesn't even need to know the bank setup.  The  
only configuration this script looks at is `Dirvish:' (the path to  
dirvish) and the `Runall:' block.  So, you don't need the redundant  
bank declarations, just specify them (and all your expire rules, etc)  
in master.conf, and only put the `Runall:' block in host{n}-master.conf.
