So, static content copied manually (or rsync'd periodically) between
multiple nodes...

Not only that, but you need to use power fencing w/ two_node="1" for it
to work.

Currently, you can't use qdisk to do that - because qdisk needs to talk
to shared storage (and therefore, fencing) as well.

What about just getting another pair of nodes that you can just let run
and running piranha+LVS to direct traffic to your frequently-maintained
servers since there's no shared data?

It kind of side-steps the quorum problem.
