It's exactly that setup that's the peeve.  I don't think that this is
an easy problem to fix, as the general one needs filesystem access to
more than one machine, even machines without PostgreSQL installed, for
the case where the slons are on separate boxes.

It's just a peeve. :)

On the other hand, lack of a good set of startup tools has pretty much
tanked Slony adoption :(

Cheers,
David.
