If you file a bugzilla about them, we can see how much it'll be worth it
to reintroduce them.

max restarts used to mean:

* If the service is restarted X times, fail over

A false start used to mean:

* A service 'start' phase succeeds, but the first status check fails.

Max false starts was then:

* If the service false-started X times, fail over

It might be difficult to do a service-wide max-false-starts because
individual resources are checked at different times.  In RHCS3,
everything was checked at the same time all the time.
