Oh, product flame ware. Sorry to disappoint you, but I haven't joined
the thread to place product plugs. I'm getting older, hopefully more
wisely and luckily, something else is feeding my family. ;-) As you
started the product plug stuff, I guess it is different at your side.

I'm sure, IBReplicator does its job very well. I simply noted that V3 RC
should be treated as not production-ready (like any other RC in
Firebird's history), but perhaps the Firebird project philosophy changed.

Na, replication is an additional (complex) layer, which needs to be
maintained, monitored etc ...
