That begs the question in turn why there are so many master/slave 
replication solutions.  I mean, I don't care, but this categorization 
doesn't really answer the original question.

These are not multimaster solutions in the sense that you can write to 
any one of multiple hosts.  In a sense, they are really master/slave 
solutions with the program components distributed differently.  To 
write, you always have to go through one host.
