split-brain problems for write operations *unless* you invest enormous
sophistication in keeping them synced with the master, *or* unless you just
inveest some cash up front in the more sophisticated commercial tools our
friends and developers over at Wandisco provide their commercial grade
"Multi-Site" setups.

Doing manual switchovers of clients to an aalternative upstream mirrored
site is awkward and painful enough that, for commercial use, I'd go to
Multi-Site based tools in a heartbeat..
