Have you considered warm standby PITR?   It achieves essentially the
same thing with very little overhead on the master.  The only downside
relative to DRDB is you have to think about the small gap between WAL
file rotations.  From what I understand, there is some new stuff
(check out skype skytools) that may help minimize this problem.
