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

As I understand it, the only impact will be a larger-than-normal
resync when you bring the secondary back up.  I don't believe running
without the secondary will slow down the primary, as it just tracks
the changes in its bitmap.

So the real issue comes down to the size of your filesystem and how
much of it will be written to during the downtime.
