Well, yes, that is exactly the idea ;-)

In fact, heartbeat treats "heartbeat processes died on a node" in exactly the
same fashion as a node failure.

I hope that, as soon as Ram starts with the transactional membership and we
get group services, we'll be able to rewrite the currently rather limited
resource manager of heartbeat.

Apparently, the assumed simplicity of heartbeat appeals to people ;-)
