[LDM #OQD-608743]: ldm failover question

The two upstream sites would have to ensure that the data-product signatures 
(i.e., MD5 checksums) were computed identically.  Also, the data-products would 
have to have the same feedtype as well as the same product-identifier.

Both upstream sites would compete to send data-products to the downstream site. 
 One of the upstream sites would be in PRIMARY mode and the other would be in 
ALTERNATE mode.  The downstream site would switch modes between them based on 
which upstream site was better able to feed it.
