for performance we already have murder, what we currently lack is 
redundancy. once we have redundancy then the next enhancement is going to 
be to teach murder about it so that it can failover to the backup box(s) 
as needed, but for now simply having the full data at the backup location 
would be so far ahead of where we are now that the need to reconfigure 
murder for a failover is realitivly trivial by comparison.

There are two ways of constructing a software design. One way is to make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies. And the other way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies.
