Batching is ok, except that you never know how many entries you'll going
to have, thus you will have to actually write the data after a period of
time, even if you don't have the 500 entries.

This is where it would be cool to extend the cookie to receive the
expected number of updates you are going to receive (which will be
obviously be 1 in a normal running R&P replication, but > 1 most of the
time when reconnecting). In this case, youc an anticipate the batching
operation without having to tke care of the time issue.
