Hi Greg,

I might take a look at this test case - but no promises wrt timing. Keep 
in mind, though, that Bucardo (at least B4) would not behave well at all 
if you attempted to replicate unique keys containing one or more NULLs.

Question: Is Bucardo5 still intended to replicate to databases other 
than Postgres, or did it turn out to be a bit too ambitious? If the 
former, a lot more testing is required - naturally. Some databases might 
already support NULLs in the primary key vector in the WHERE clause ...
