Regarding replication, the Slony-I guys state that their project is not
yet ported to Windows, but giving that there is a pthread library for
Windows (which is about the only thing it lacks, apparently) then it
should be possible to port it rather easily.  I'm sure they'd welcome it
if somebody were to do the legwork.  I know of several people who would
be very glad to have Win32 Slony-I.
