Right now I would not worry about replication. You can solve this problem
later. Just focus on your part functioning properly. This will be a problem
we will need to solve anyway. Plus replication is not really there in a
dependable way.

Exactly what I started writing above.

Eventually the replication mechanism will need to support partial and
fractional replication. It's way over simplified and does not have the
control structures for us to properly configure it in a fine grained

This will need to change of course but I'd really like to review
replication after we finish with the Txn stuff because then it will make
internal replication handling much clearer for us then.

Does this make sense?
