In the etc/StartXRD.cf and etc/StartOLB.cf example files we find the 
following line.

RESP=`/usr/local/bin/taylor -q opts | grep '^olbd=.*master'`

1. We don't have a program called "taylor" and I wondered what it does.
2. In the case of the StartXRD.cf, should it really be grepping for 
oldb=.*master, or should it be looking at xrootd=.*master??

As written it would seem to force the olbd master and the xrootd 
redirector to run on the same host, which may well be efficient and 
desirable, and therefore a "good thing", but perhaps not conducive to a 
clear understanding of how things work (as evidenced by my suspicion 
about why it is done this way).
