No worries, that's definitely a shortcoming. There is talk of getting DDL 
triggers into core at some point, but no progress has been made on it

to fund a developer.

There is always 9.1 and its hot standby as well, of course, which goes 
a long way towards replacing some of what Slony and Bucardo do.
