Well, at least maybe some clarification, if a total re-write is too time consuming.  If the difference between the two
has nothing to do with the number of nodes involved, and only whether or not there's an external frontend, perhaps they
would be more aptly titled "N-Way Multi-Master" and "Proxied N-Way Multi-Master".  And, perhaps any emphasis on the
number of nodes involved should be removed to avoid ambiguity?

Just my thoughts, hope it helps Gavin.  Let me know if there's anything I can do to help.
