Sounds like a good reason to me, although you may
regret it next time you desperately need a doorstop.

I notice from the ubuntu-uk list you already have this
working (I've been "onsite" for the last week so I'm
just catching up on my emails) but for completness:

www.ucarp.org and www.linux-ha.org have free software
solutions, redhat cluster server I think is Free but
with paid support and www.steeleye.com have a
commercial package. There are others, Sun have a
product, as do HP etc, google knows far more then I
ever will.

They have their advantages and disadvantages depending
on what you're trying to do, how much you're willing
to spend, and how important support is.
