I should already be in bed, but as a very brief reply: I find automatic failover of MySQL
servers to be a thoroughly bad idea. Stick to manual failover, regardless of what
mechanism you implement. If you absolutely must go automatic, be damn sure the supposedly
failed node is dead and buried before switching - kill it yourself if you have to (think
IP-enabled power switches).

I've seen many people rave, but my experience is close to yours: if you want something,
figure it out yourself.

Works very well as a general solution, but may be a bit of overkill. Have a look at
Ultramonkey for good documentation and setups.

Unknown to me.

People also rave about MMM, haven't much looked at it, yet.
