thats how it works already - sort of.
there is a layer of indirection with resource-failcount-stickiness,
but basically once failcount hits a threshold - the resource moves.
knowing what to set resource-failcount-stickiness to can be tricky.
one of the easiest, i can turn my brain off, ways is:
1) to start the cluster and make sure everything is running
2) figure out the current score (see conversations regarding the
getscores.sh script that has been posted here)
3) divide said score by X and add 1

no, at least not yet anyway
interesting idea though

as above. not at the moment
