> The current gossip conviction threshold is a bit too low, and can cause hosts to 'flap'
under heavy load.  I suspect that the original author of the failure detector implementation
originally used both suspect and convict, but at some point decided that there was no action
to take when a host was suspected, or that it was not worth doing.  They appear to have short-circuited
the code to convict on suspect to eliminate this, however this caused the suspicion threshold
(5) to be used for convicting hosts instead of the conviction threshold (8).
