I think most things we have said are right and perhaps we should create
a protocol that is smart enaugh to handle this situations. Like a bus 
system where one entity can declare itself as master. This master can
then declare that it goes offline and that another machine must take 
over. I think if the protocol is smart enaugh, it's not a so big deal.
I allways love a generic solution, so i think this is a way to go.

Best Regards,
