the master is idle *unless* someone submits a log and possibly unblocks
another package that way

submitting a log (or any other modification of the logdb, e.g.
rescheduling) clears the idle state and requires status recomputation on
the next connection

the important part is that just querying the idle state is cheap (no
loading of Packages and logDB)

Just imagine you have 7 slaves running and about 50 sections in your
config ... like me :-)
