That would be excellent!  I´d also been considering approaches for high 
availability, and was thinking about a group-communication system like 
the spread toolkit (spread.org).  With such a multicast system you could 
even have multiple components handling each service for load balancing. 
  Another benefit is for logging components, like bandersnatch, which 
would take up no extra bandwidth because they are just intercepting 
multicast packets.
