I am very pleased to hear this, and I thought that I would call
out one particular part:

Open-sourcing HA should make it much easier to make sure that
Open vSwitch works well with it.  We spent a lot of time in one

when xha was deciding that the machine needed to be rebooted.
Actually knowing, instead of having to guess, will be great.
