Sure. I wonder about the granularity though: if we have multiple
connections (multiple Elasticsearch cluster, a Lucene cluster with JGroups
or JMS, ...), what would these OpenShift people want us to expose? One big
"everything is fine/something is wrong" status, potentially returning a
specific error message to tell what part is wrong exactly? Or finer-grained
statuses, like "backend X: OK, backend Y: OK, Backend Z/JGroups: OK, ..."?
Also, I suppose we would expose our own APIs/SPIs, right? Not implement
some OpenShift-specific SPIs? I'd rather avoid that...
