Fix discrepancies between live nodes? (caused by transient failures presumably)

Perhaps it would be good to have convenience workflow for replacing
broken host ("squashing lemons")? I would assume that most common use
case is to effectively replace host that can't be repaired (or perhaps
it might sometimes be best way to do it anyway), by combination of
removing failed host, bringing in new one. Handling this is as
high-level logical operation could be more efficient than doing it
step by step.
