Sure have.


The validation that the MCP does is pretty comprehensive; I just wish it was more informative when there was a problem. I updated `bucardo validate` to be better about reporting errors, but the more comprehensive validation done by MCP is just totally silent. Drives me nuts.

Mis-feature, anyway. Someone needs to do the work to merge the two validates so they are the same, and then to make sure that both are noisy in the terminal. That task, unfortunately, cannot be done with the limited time I currently have to hack on Bucardo. Volunteers greatly welcome!
