This feature seems to be easy to do now but I would like to
suspend any work on it before we implement promote(), proxy,
dynamic assignment of server ids, and smart filtering of relayed
rows (server id based filtering). 

We have been stuck with these features since the spring, they are
more important than this one, and they may have dramatic impact on
complexity of this feature.
