You don't want to wait until all slaves are brought up to date, but only
for the sync to the slave that the client has used for the commit.

I suggested last week at SubConf to let the slave initiate the sync when
it finds out the commit has finished. I don't know how easy it is to
implement, but in concept this looks like the better model.
