I'm working on a project that plans to use replication and the update
notification process to let clients know when a save is safely written
to 2 nodes (ignoring fsync issues...)

Write doc X to node A.
Always be replicating to B.
When doc X's new rev shows up on B, then you can tell the client it's
been saved.
