    # See the comments in there. We need to atomically grab the next
    # batch experiment we want to try, and then change its state from
    # new to configuring. We want to grab just one experiment, since
    # it takes a while to configure an experiment, and grabbing a bunch and
    # locking them up might result in having to wait a really long time
    # to cancel a batch experiment that hasn't really tried to start yet!

    # damn simplistic. I set the "started" datetime field each attempt,
    # and I pick the batch_experiment with the oldest time, thereby cycling
169 170 171 172
    # through in a "least recently attempted" manner. In addition, we want
    # to throttle the number simultaneous batches that one person can
    # can have running at a time (curently to just one batch), so check to
    # to see if the person has another batch active (thats e2 below).
