As I've roughly described before, it is possible to 'promote' a slave
to a 'master' by tweaking the HTTP Server config files on each
machine. Since a slave always has a full copy of the database, it
can easily become a master.

Note that for read operations, the master isn't required. Only
commits couldn't happen. So, if a master does fail, the only thing
that will happen is that you can't write to the repository.
Therefore, most users may not even notice if the master disappears.
