One customer does not make a hundred. I am not saying that the shipping
isn't valid, just that those that I talk to are more interested in the
read only slave. Consider that we have any number of ways to solve the
problem we are considering implementing now. DRBD being just one of
them. Especially considering we aren't talking about failover etc..

I have seen much more positive than negative. I think most are just
trying to figure out exactly what we are talking about.

I for example am not really against the feature at all. I am suspect of
the idea of only shipping 2 components of a 3 component feature though.
