yes, in my setup the first hop is key and second pass. However, I wasn't 
able to get the dialog for key at the first hop. Not very important though

That would be an improvement. However for globally distinct clones (my 
case) it would help to see witch instance of the clone is running where ...

Default location depends on how you configure heartbeat. The old syslogd 
option might through logs to whatever syslogd.conf dictates while the 
new logd option will log to the configured files in logd.cf. So what do 
you mean by "default"?

glad to hear it.

It's just a "nice to have" and probably not terribly difficult to 
implement feature. Management folks understand better nicely colored 
pictures and "selling" our work into meetings with a "live" snapshot of 
the running cluster  will be much more effective than words or printouts 
of crm_mon output :)
