I'm with Simon. In my own experience, it's crazy to try to introduce a
huge feature such as this one in a single enormous commit. The last
patch you posted was 300 kb without any SGML changes.

(or logical multi-master replication, for that matter) --- one
infrastructure piece at a time.

Let's build incrementally.
