comment Making a hot spare with automatic failover
I currently use Webmin and VirtualMin to manage my apache server and server in general. Everything (unless I'm doing load balancing) doesn't need to be synced. I.E., if the server goes down, it's okay if the hot space has day old data instead of second old data.

comment Firefox execution fails from a root executed script with privilege drop
It might not, it might work fine. Or, it could blow up. You could script it to change roots uid at the start of the script and then change it back after firefox is launched ;)
