This is also provided by my system, but with some strict limitations:

* all tables must have the same first three fields: inode_id, mtime, attr
  (im using inherited tables, perhaps thats not needed)
* on each write operation, the mtime field must be set accurately
  (im currently not using an rule, since i dont know if there's an 
  way to disabled this within an query -- perhaps someone can help here)
* currently only an explicit sync-out is supported - from time to time
  evry table has to be scanned for new records
* currently no real conflict handling

perhaps we can improve this a little bit.
