I was initially interested in this myself, but after a long discussion
on "quorum commit" it was decided to go with "first past post".
That is easier to manage, requires one less parameter, performs better
and doesn't really add that much additional confidence.
It was also discussed that we would have a plugin API, but I'm less sure
about that now. Perhaps we can add that option in the future, but its
not high on my list of things for this release.
