Of course, we only ever do skip initial sync this way if in fact we
*can* sync the disks up otherwise (via RAID1, e.g.).

Setting up a DRBD cluster with unsynced disks is madness.

To the OP: If your machines aren't live yet, you can try and dd your
partitions through the network (via ssh or netcat). It may be quicker
than a DRBD sync.
