[Spread-users] Blocking on membership changes

No, it doesn't... Spread won't give you this ability.  However, since
as far as I understand it you're basically looking for some slightly
different application-level behavior, rather than message delivery
ordering, you could implement this easily.   A simple way is by
buffering all messages delivered after the regular membership message
(except state messages) until the servers' know that the state
exchange is complete, and then processing the buffered messages.
