problems, unplug one and plug in the other...(Im sure there are other far
more elegant solutions)

Some guys in Hong Kong Digital did a Highly Available
Proxy setup with shared disks, automatic failover
facility for some big company in Hong Kong. A HA
proxy is possible. A DNS round robin can be use to
"load balance" the two servers.

But I think a more elegant solution will be to use ICP
as a heart beat between servers, and use ICP to fail
over proxy services.
