	Okay, but my question still remains: why does this require a code
change (and related build headaches) of any kind whatsoever?  Why not just
configure each slave to also be a master?  Why won't slurpd simply puke
all changes to all servers?

	In short, what does the code do?

	Huh?  Why?  If each node is a master, it would not redirect for
writes.  I don't understand why this is necessary.
