[Bucardo-general] Simple question regarding master-master

We're running differently from Rosser's one-bucardo suggestion--which 
does make sense.  We're dual master but we need both boxes to be as 
identical as possible partly because the process has to be repeatable on 
many pairs and also because we bounce our apps on occasion but want the 
DBs to stay in sync.  So we have bucardo on each box, with each local 
bucardo writing to its remote peer.  So it's a criss-cross arrangement.

For our purpose, at least, this also gets us a little bit of HA: even if 
our application layer and bucardo are down on one box, as long as its 
database is running, the fully-up peer box will continue writing its 
changes to the partly down box.

I'm not saying our approach is correct, but it's working for us.
