[Linux-HA] Failing over on resource failure - is it possible ?

The application that I am considering using linux-ha for requires a
failover to occur when a locally hosted resource fails. From
documentation and brief testing of heartbeat it does not seem like the
resources configured in haresources file are monitored by heartbeat.
So, if a master is hosting an FTP server and that FTP server dies
(while the node itself remains operational in all other respects), is it
possible to have hearbeat failover - or essentially commit suicide to
force a failover - to another node ? Ideally, the node that detected a
hosted resource failure should then attempt a re-start of the resources
and the node itself and on success become the master again.
Thanks for any help.
