I'd be all for that too. Actually, I'd be all for going one step further and 
write a program(or if one like that already exists, put it in base) that 
checks/monitors the health of the hardware. Bad hardware (drives, memory etc) 
are sneaky fuckers that tend to bite when one doesn't expect it. I dont know 
how one would go about making such software but going forward, a cluster of 
ie. 32 DF servers would be difficult to monitor for health and such software 
would just make it much easier. In my opinion.
