Well... you can set one of the 2 as an observer.  That way you can have a
quorum of one of 2, but you can't have a quorum of the other of two.
 Probably not what you want.

You can also set up a third member who refuses to become leader.  They
basically serve as a tiebreaker.  You can lighten the load on the
tiebreaker by not allowing clients to connect.
