Cool, this sounds interesting.  Let's say that server A gets an update 
to change foo=dog and and the same time server B gets an update to 
change foo=cat.  Replication takes a while and 15 minutes later, A gets 
the update to change foo=cat from B and B gets the update to change 
foo=dog.  How does that get resolved?
