If folks want to diverge from "the OpenStack way", that's perfectly
fine.  In that case we just need to make sure all of the primitives are
there for someone to implement their own solution.

As far as I know, the compute API already exposes the primitives
necessary here.  If you detect a compute node failure using your Thing,
you can use live-migrate or evacuate, depending on whether the compute
node is on its way to dying, or is already dead.
