No.  It's only just been made to work this summer, and the patches
haven't been merged with the main PsotgreSQL code.  If reliability is
what you want, don't use bleeding-edge tools.

We use eRserver from PostgreSQL, Inc.  It's commercial, but it works
very well for us.

There is a contrib/ set of files called dbmirror which others have
had success with.

Neither of these does "hot failover".  In other words, no matter what
you use, you'll be needing a pager.
