Um. The Paxos algorithm is not the only way to do multi-master
synchronization.

Master-slave configurations do have their uses, although they're
theoretically less robust than a well-executed multi-master setup. On
the other hand, they're easier to implement correctly. However, when I
say "easier" I certainly do not mean "easy"; there are a *lot* of
opportunities for messing up.

That said, I'm rather bored by this plugging for WANdisco's solution by
someone who, by his own admission, has never used it.
