yes, but according to [1] and other sources the current implementation of
refreshAndPersist is not a pure push solution. It's still the slave that
initiates the connection. To me it looked as I'd have to wait for 2.4.

Correct me if I'm wrong as I might misinterpret the docs, however. Have
you tested this and confirmed it works?
