In reading i've found the ASA in an Active/Active config can't failover VPN tunnels.  My question is simply can it have tunnels?  I mean can I terminate to one of the fiewalls if it is in an Active/active with another one?  Or does this functionality simply go away?

You are correct that VPN failover is not supported in Active/Active mode because A/A requires multiple contexts
 "VPN failover is available for Active/Standby Failover configurations only. "

But I don't think that means that you can't do VPN at all on A/A configurations. Only one of them would be the VPN endpoint.
