Rather than implement two failover protocols,  Kea will address this
area with High Availability configuration, which will rely partly on
RDBMs replication.   We will be ironing that out in Kea 1.4.

We aren't pulling the plug exactly.  Maintenance releases 4.3.6 and
4.1-ESV-R15 just went out 7/31.   Our next feature release, 4.4.0 is due
out January '18.   We are just unlikely to add major new undertakings. 
A few things likely going into 4.4.0:

1. A hybrid behavior we're calling "dual-stack mixed-mode" for DDNS in
dual-stack environments with non-compliant clients.
2. dhcp-cache-threshold for V6. 
3. EUI-64/DUID based address allocation
4. A handful of issues regarding v6 prefix delegation
