In my case, this would be used for Maildir hosting.
Multiple drbd resources would be unmanageable and useless, with Maildir i'll
have a huge NFS server (maybe v3 to be stateless) in active/passive. Any
short failure
in terms of couple of seconds should be unnoticed by everyone (users,
dovecot deliveries and so on)
because all software are configured to retry some times.
