One thing that would be cool which HyperDB is lacking is replication
lag detection. If a database server is down, HyperDB deals with it
gracefully and goes on to try the next one. If a slave is lagging
behind the master, however, HyperDB returns old data to the client. I
think MediaWiki's distributed database class deals with this problem,
but it is the only one AFAIK.
