I missed it. It looks pretty old, though; I don't think 
it applies any more, and it doesn't allow much flexibility,
as only one subtree per replica is handled.

In HEAD there's a fix for this (there was a broken test 
on suffix being a legal subtree of the backend to be
replicated). I guess this fix will be tagged REL_ENG_2
before release.

Consider also that the feature that is being released will 
probably be replaced by a more neat solution in the future.
