Ok, so syncrepl does not seem to be a good idea in the case of two masters
in different places.  What about the case of two load-balanced masters?
Will syncrepl garantee that the data are the same on the two master? Or is
it just as old multimaster code: it push (in fact pull) the modifications
and does not check that the master's state is like the other's?
