Yup. That's the limitaion of async replication solutions.

PGCluster consists of three kind of servers, "load balance server",
"cluster server"(modified PostgreSQL backend) and "replication
server". I believe some of codes of pgpool are used in the load
balance server to avoid "re-invent a wheel". This is a beauty of open
