Um, raise $150,000 to pay for a clustering implementation?
Various techniques of "shared memory clustering" have been tried with
PostgreSQL, and none work. Neither does LinuxLabs "ClusGres", which is
based on similar principles -- unfortunately. (at least, LL repeatedly

Frankly, we're waiting for a well-funded corporation to jump in and decide
