FYI, in my opinion the trigger addition is clearly useful to Mammoth
Replicator as well. In fact, it's so obviously useful that I didn't see
a need to state that in the original thread where it was discussed.
Not sure about the timestamp stuff, because Replicator is not
multi-master, so there's no conflict resolution to take care of.
