Ah, ok.  I thought that's what you were proposing -- journal on A and B. 
 I re-read your message, and you're proposing the journal itself to fly 
over the TCP connection, not journaling locally for filesystems 
connected over TCP.

This freaking cold I have makes reading and thinking difficult. :-)
