Personally this would have been great when I was dealing with failover preparation before moving things to the datacenter. Being able to on demand crash certain VM's (no, not kill them, stop them or so, but really crash them) would have been great, since it's an alltogether different failure mode, and may need special care.

Yes, I really do hope this goes into mainline, It might have to be installed separately in a distribution ofc. but it's still good to have proper debug tools.
