BZZZT.  Correction to self:  PostgreSQL has just CVS commit'ed their
database replication into the source tree this morning.  Wow.  I love how
time flies in open source worlds.

By the way, this discussion might open another can of good-stuff for
Application-level database clustering.  Where it becomes easy to specify
multiple DSN's for a given IC "Database" depending on if it is a write
action or a read action.  (i.e. all INSERTS use
masterdatabaseserver.domain.com/, and all SELECT's use

Would anyone like to comment on the feasability of adding that feature?
