Master/Slave replication, especially on large scales, brings up a
whole can of specialised worms.
My own opinion is that such replication is sufficiently specialised
to warrant its own protocol, rather than using stripped-down nntp
servers, Xref: header processing, variations on XREPLIC, or any one
of a multitude of other local pieces of code.
Would it not make sense to set up some kind of investigative group,
outside of the actual NNTP WG (though I would imagine that there would
be a great deal of overlap in the membership), to deal with those
issues particular to master/slave replication?
