You tell us! :)

For starters, it doesn't pull back the entire row from the actual 
data table. It also no longer does an update on the other end. The 
new "swap" is really just like the old "pushdelta": grab a list of 
distinct primary keys. Use that to delete rows from the target, 
and then copy them from the source to the target. So the new 
master-master simply does that process 
twice, going both ways (as needed).

I'll post some benchmarks eventually. Super rough and quick testing 
using pgbench shows it takes a cold Bucardo about 30 seconds to 
sort out a five-master configuration with around 1000 rows of 
changes to each one.
