1) You should only need a makedelta on the goat for DB1. If a new row
comes from DB2, we need to make sure that DB3 thinks it is new as well.

2) Checktime is not required, per se, but you'll need some way to tell the
other sync that it needs to run. This can be done with a customcode on
both sides that calls the other sync by issuing a NOTIFY.

3) I really need to work on the Bucardo documentation...
