I think the referral mechanism resulting from performing a write operation
on a slave is the intended mech.  In 2.3 (actually, in HEAD; scheduled for
2.3) you may browse the configuration in back-config ("cn=config") and see
if a server is a master or a slave; or you may ask for a feature like
registering this info into back-monitor ("cn=monitor").
