I've added a disable_queue config option and --disable-queue flag to the
github code. See this post for usage:

I've also added a refresh_interval option to the config and a
--refresh-interval flag to the 'start' command in the github code. This
allows you to set the refresh interval at the command line:

$ starcluster start --refresh-interval=15 mycluster

Or you can set the refresh interval once and for all in the global
section of the config:

# specified in seconds (default: 30)
refresh_interval = 15
