In 2.3, of course.

One would think that would be self-evident.

What does any of that have to do with the original question? Just
because a feature doesn't match your personal agenda doesn't mean it's
worthless to everyone else. Replication wasn't even mentioned anywhere
in the original post, why drag in irrelevant topics when responding?

For the life of me, I can't find the back-config man page. Also, not all of my replicas need the same indexing, so replicating the configs around would take some care to specify which host does what.
