Subject Re: [jira] Created: (DIRSERVER-1098) New replicas may never be synchronised

I don't think so.  At the moment we just serialise Java objects and send 
them over the wire.  We plan to add other protocols in the future.

I think that since we allow modifications on multiple replicas 
simultaneously we can get that situation at any point anyway.
