=head1 DESCRIPTION
beekeeper.pl is the Perl script used to initialize and control the execution of eHive pipelines
and perform some maintenance tasks on the undelying eHive database.
The Beekeeper is in charge of interfacing between the Queen and a compute resource or 'compute farm'.
Its job is to initialize/sync the eHive database (via the Queen), query the Queen if it needs any workers
and to send the requested number of workers to open machines via the runWorker.pl script.
It is also responsible for interfacing with the Queen to identify workers which died
unexpectantly so that she can free the dead workers and reclaim unfinished jobs.
