Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

I would have 2 virtual IPs, one per 2-node cluster.

I would then have the servers in each location mount the virtual IP. 
Should one cluster go down both IPs would migrate to the remaining 
running cluster.

I think this would be a massive headache to configure in pacemaker but I 
want to see if this scenario is even possible, and what problems it 
could cause before I start looking into pacemaker.
