An option would be to listen for transport failures in the  
remoteBroker transport and stop (and unwind) the local broker  
transport on failure - and only re-connect when the remote broker  
transport is re-established. transportInterupted and transportResumed  
was added to the TransportListener to do this type of stuff.
