Yep, big mistake my removing the replication FAQ item. I have re-added a
new one:

	4.21) What replication solutions are available?
	
	Though "replication" is a single term, there are two major replication
	technologies. Multi-master replication allows read/write queries to be
	sent to multiple replicated computers. Using this capability has a
	serious performance impact. Pgcluster is the most popular such solution
	available for PostgreSQL. Master-slave replication allows a single
	master to receive read/write queries, with slaves able to accept only
	read/SELECT queries. The most popular master-slave PostgreSQL
	replication solution is Slony. There are also commercial and
	hardware-based replication solutions available.
