Would this be the replication that, for all databases run by a daemon,
just writes the text of SQL queries into some journal file, that another
process reads and streams across a network, to a third process on the
other side, that replays them into its copy of the data with the mere
hope that the same query will apply, and all will be well? That one that
breaks for us about once a week... That replication?
