why is it discouraged?  I think it can be useful in  order to let update
the  tree from  more  server. Think  for example  when  you've got  more
distribuited replicated servers  connected with vpns and  the links fail
when you need to modify the data in the tree...

Is  there  a better  way  of  solving  the  problem, without  using  the
multimaster feature?
