Re: direct local change when a consumer chains a write to the producer?

Another directory product is queueing the requests when connectivity to
the replica is broken. So how about automagically fall-back to
asynchronous mode in these rather rare cases? This would hit these kind
of applications but only these.

Also the fall-back behaviour should be configured off course. The
directory admin has to carefully think about replication configuration
depending on the network connectivity anyway.

Configuration based on authcID would be ideal if it's not too much
implementation hassle.
