Or even network topology challenges. It would be easy to set up a
configuration where the clients are firewalled away from the master,
can only speak to the slave (and only the slave can speak to the
master). I'm not sure I believe it would be a good idea: basically
you're putting your server into the network DMZ, but your server's
the data you want best guarded, not least! But just 'cause I don't
think it's a useful idea does not mean some crazy IT manager won't do
it. Indeed, simply because it's called a "Proxy" might make this
more likely, as that word is also widely used for "the computer in
the DMZ that the clients talk to in order to get to the Internet."
