I was thinking the same! I'd like to know how other databases such as Oracle
do it.

Which brings up another question: why not just cluster at the hardware
layer? Get an external fiberchannel array, and cluster a bunch of dual
Opterons, all sharing that storage. In that sense you would be getting
one big PostgreSQL 'image' running across all of the servers.

Or is that idea too 90's?  ;-)
