I was wondering if clever use of syncrepl could be used to simulate
replica-write-through.  To explain- a client could send a write to a
replica, who would accept the write and send it through to the master
who would know to update the rest of the comsumers (the original
consumer already accepted the write, so it knows that it's in sync).

There are ways to do something close to this, where the replica forwards the write to the master (rather than returning a referral), and then all the replicas get sync'd by the master.
