What I did was to mention Slony and pgpool as "examples", so people
realize there are many other soluions.  It would be good to have a
companion web site that could list them all, both open source and
commercial.  That is going to take a lot more work, but I think would
have great value, especially since our documentation will clearly
outline the terms.  What you don't want to do is to throw up a list and
have people try to figure out what solutions they cover.
