On other nodes as well?  To me that means the standby needs to hold back
COMMIT of an ACKed transaction, until receives a re-ACK from the master,
that it committed the transaction there.  How else could the slave know
when to commit its ACKed transactions?

If you don't failover, how can the standby be ahead of the master, given
it takes measures not to be during normal operation?

Eager to understand... ;-)
