In contrast, the PostgreSQL team has chosen to provide hooks for replication and failover. This has led to a situation where there are multiple projects supporting replications/failover, none of which are production-ready nor shipped in a modern Linux distro.

And no, we don't really provide hooks :). However there are several projects trying to solve different problems with PostgreSQL.

Modern systems *must* scale beyond a single computer, and the PostgreSQL support shipped in modern Linux distros is completely incapable of this.

Slony-I is quite capable as a production class FOSS replication system and is in use widely.
