Fallback/multiple database support

I've got a master/master MariaDB setup and I'd love to be able to set multiple hostnames in wordpress to utilize this high availability cluster.

They share user/pass/dbname it is just that I've got multiple dbhosts.

I've little interest in sharding or load balancing between the systems. I just desire: if wordpress can't connect to one host that it tries another.

This won't be added to core - but is the standard for setting up your DB cluster.
