Well, you can do that today (sort of) with 2-way replication, but that
depends on your implementation. The biggest issue, of course, is how
to resolve conflicts. Ideally there could be some user-supplied logic
to do that (maybe an add on foo.so can be used--in the same way that
you can build a UDF today and tell the server about it).

Isn't that what the first entry here:
Obviously it doesn't hint at the actual implementation. And I'm sure
several of us would like to understand it once it is figured out. It
has come up more than once in recent discussions here. We have folks
wondering how it will fit in with the way we'd like to see fail-over
