A leader is merely a replica that has won an election and has a
temporary title.  It's still a replica, even if it's the ONLY replica.

I would need to look at the code to figure out how it works, but I would
imagine that the shards are shuffled randomly among the hosts so that
multiple collections will be evenly distributed across the cluster.  It
would take me quite a while to familiarize myself with the code before I
could figure out where to look.

If you want to have absolute control over shard and replica placement,
then you will probably need to follow steps similar to these:

* Create a collection with replicationFactor=1.
* Create foo_shardN_replica2 cores with CoreAdmin or ADDREPLICA where
you want them.
* Let the replication fully catch up.
* Use DELETEREPLICA on all the foo_shardN_replica1 cores.
* Manually create the foo_shardN_replica1 cores where you want them.
* Manually create any additional replicas that you desire.
