If people on core had come to the idea that we needed to build in
replication *before* 8.3 came out, they certainly didn't announce it.

Now is a great time to mention this because it gives everybody time to:

1.  Come to a consensus on what the out-of-the-box replication should
be, and 

2.  Build, test and debug whatever the consensus out-of-the-box
replication turns out to be.

Cheers,
David.
