AFAIK Continuent's product fails that test...

I don't see any reason to exclude things that work with databases other
than PostgreSQL, though I agree that replication that's actually in the
application space (ie: it ties you to TomCat or some other platform)
probably doesn't belong.

My feeling is that people reading this chapter are looking for solutions
and probably don't care as much about how exactly the solution works so
long as it meets their needs.
