I tried this before but the downsides were:

- long waits due not  being in quorum (fence timeout is 600 seconds by default)
- you have to rewrite the cluster.conf to make it work
- break legacies with distros/systems not using this init script

Let me know what you think about the problems I listed above because
this solution looks much cleaner.
