We've been kicking the idea around. We use vrrp between a pair of FreeBSD
based web servers. The amount of multicast traffic for heartbeats is a bit
of an annoyance, but otherwise just fine.
On the other hand, if running m0n0wall on something like a net4801 (which
has no moving parts, not even a fan) you might want to consider the MTBF of
the box against the additional complexity. And remember, if you have two
firewall boxes, you have twice the chance of a failure.
