Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

Maybe an example can shed some light here.

* nodes node1 and node2 are disconnect at Time t0.
* At t1, node1 becomes primary.
* At t2, node2 becomes primary.
* At t4, both nodes are seconary again.
* At t5, nodes are reconnected.

Now after-sb-0pri (after split brain with currently 0 primaries), the
"discard-older-primary" policy will make node2 the sync source, as it
will discard the "older" primary (the node that became primary first).
