[erlang-questions] Amazon S3 backend for Mnesia

Suppose I pick the first node in the external_copies list. If I'm  
that node than I'll do the write and otherwise I'll do nothing.

What happens when the first node in the list goes down?

Does Mnesia update right away? How soon does it notice that the node  
has gone down?

Does this mean that during that timeframe I'll be loosing  
transactions since the first node will be down and others won't be  
the first node?

	Thanks, Joel
