which is not a problem, as long as you do not auto-failback
(you should not with drbd and heartbeat 1.x).
unless you have a complete cluster crash, _and_ both nodes come back at
the same time, _and_ have loads to sync, _and_ heartbeat decides to make
the synctarget primary, _and_ then the dungeon collapses again.
which is unlikely.

but yes, if you (thats all of you out there...) really think you want
this, we code it into the scripts, drbdadm, and drbd.conf.
