that is very cool!
A word of caution to people that might get carried away, TNG supports
different types of failure handling (and even cooler, on a per-resource
basis)... the one in operation here does not ensure that the old
instance is fenced before starting the new one. This could lead to
data corruption and is definitely not a good idea for peoples' disk
based resources :)

Not at all, in fact I should be thanking you! You've already helped
pin-point a number of holes :)

That *should* work, I should also write a test case for it one of these
