ACK.
A major release (for me) implies some really major improvement.
Replication would be such a thing.

BTW: is there anything working yet in this direction ?
I know several "userland" implementations (w/ triggers), and I also
doing symetric (masterless) replication in my middleware framework, 
but when will pgsql be able to do it by itself ? 
And when will probably load balancing come ?

hmm, which commerical RDBMS (beside oracle) provide this already ?
