It basically is.  DRBD 0.8 and cmirror + gnbd/iscsi provide similar
solutions to the same problem, and are either close to or fully
production-ready.

The disabled fence agents are only really disabled probably because
historically, we've kept the CVS pool as Red-Hat-centric as possible.
That is, we disable things we don't support.  From a community
perspective, several agents here should still built per-default.

baytech - This is specific to an old Bay Technologies switch IIRC; I do
not think this is even made anymore.  Probably safe to nuke.

cpint - I don't know what this is.

ibmblade - I don't know what this is.

primergy - I don't know what this is.

rackswitch - I don't know what this is.

rib - Old pre-iLO fencing agent.  I don't know if it's safe to remove or
not; I assume it's superceded by iLO, so it might be safe to remove.

rps10 - 2-node clusters only - very useful; not network-based power
switch.  Actually, I don't know why this isn't enabled *now*; it should
be.

xcat -  I don't know what this is.

xen - kind of superceded by fence_xvm I think - may be safe to remove;
Patrick would know.

zvm - Don't nuke this; z/i/p series support will probably require this.

vmware - gsx/esx specific fencing agent.  Red Hat doesn't currently ship
this agent, but it's community developed, and people use it IIRC.
