A software monitor on each host could detect faults and ifdown the
interface, removing that host from the available cluster.

That said, there is no provision to "activate" the new active host in
this scenario for the purposes of catching any state information. The
new active host would simply start seeing traffic on the previously
[near] idle interface. Less than ideal, again.

You have managed to get to this point? Be interested in any details.

It might be nice to have a mechanism to serialise and database module
states, however it may prove fragile.
