Because there will never be a solution that can fit the need?

Slony and replicator are only similar in that they both are asynchronous
master-slave solutions, other than that, we are vastly different and
serve very different needs.

PgCluster would be a good choice for specific workloads but is a bad
choice for many workloads.

uni/cluster is fine if you want a web app and no database logic.

The list goes on, and on.
