Unfortunately, slave database(s) should be on the same platform
(hardware+OS) to be able to use information about *physical*
changes in data files. Also, this would be still *async* replication.
Maybe faster than rserv, maybe with less space requirements (no rserv'
log table), but maybe not.
I believe that making efforts to implement (bi-directional) *sync*
replication would be more valuable.
