I should probably mention a couple of other considerations.

I think it would be possible to build out-of-the-box utilities
that would replicate for applications that were not replication
aware. There are two side-effects, though: first, the master
would always have to do a local, synchronous I/O for transaction
commit, replication wouldn't provide the master any performance
improvement. Second, clients would never be able to replace
the master, that is, if the master crashed, the clients would
have to wait for the master to reboot, at which point they would
roll forward with it.
