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

the "drbd-proxy" is a userland application with basic DRBD protocol
knowledge, with tunable compression and buffering behaviour.
It is intended to be used together with drbd protocol A for
"long distance" (high latency) replication.
It is commercially available.
