Dynamic Node Additions

We use it a lot - but I have to say that it works alright in a simple case
where one is a primary node and the other is a standby. Throw in a few more
nodes with different applications supposed to failover to different nodes
and it hasn't really worked well in production. And when there is a problem
in live, there isn't much time to study what is happening. Just have to get
it working quickly. So we resort to restarting the nodes.

And this is probably why the standard dist ac is still broken ...     
Is anybody using it in commercial products ???
