Further thoughts on that:

If you have a setup with multiple redundant processes and/or machines, 
the obvious job for the "crash handler" is to tell some other process 
or machine to take over. (This could be a matter of sending some 
commands to a hardware mixer or "router".) After that, you should 
just get out of the way ASAP, and maybe restart.
