	That is a problem only if you are taking tons of writes (in fact,
wouldn't dbcacheNoWsync only help you if you're taking tons of writes?). I
still think the model where the master is not queried, does sync, and
writes to a stable filesystem, then replicates out is a good one, unless
you really do need that many updates on a single server.
