Well, usrloc-cl is in experimental module and latest version of openser 
has db-mode 3 (the same) and path implementation, so Andreas' setup is 
possible.  The thing is, this way of doing it makes sense for some 
setups and for a small-scale setup (like 1000 accounts), the setup is a 
bit complicated. It also requires mysql cluster competence etc etc.
    Maybe it's the best, I don't know, people have different 
is an attempt at starting to describe the various setups and get 
people's input and maybe reach a consensus on what can be said to be a 
best practice setup. We need some reported experiences and people's 
input, so please discuss, add/change the description at the above link.
    So, your contribution is very welcome. We had an author for the best 
practice reference, but that person moved to another company than the 
one with focus on SER and redundancy/failover and was not interested in 
taking on the task. Open spot! ;-)
