A lot of this goes without saying.  However, Linux-HA is the only 
available, portable Failover Management Software (FMS) available for POSIX 
compliant systems.  It's under active development and the 2.x branch has 
some game.

I'm not talking about changing any default behavior, I'm asking what the 
best strategy would be to put hooks in place to easily enable 
"compatability" mode.

Adding new commands is easy with $extra_commands, but changing return 
codes requires some if[]'s in-tree.  An extra couple of cycles blown isn't 
that bad of a tradeoff to bring high availability (HA) / failover features 
to *BSD.
