my LB software to see if it is refreshing, and keep it out of the pool

As you'll note from my recent commits, the consumer currently doesn't do anything special to distinguish between a full refresh and a normal refresh. With the delta-syncrepl support I'm testing now, it does do a specific full refresh when it is out of date with the log, but for regular syncrepl there's still no distinction.

That is fine by me, I plan on using delta-syncrepl. ;) Is there a way to query the consumer to see if it is in refresh-only mode (like via back-monitor)?
