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

Uhm, why? Stacking would be the exact solution to your problem.

Please note that making B the replication master for C will not guard
you against any possible latency issues on A, because protocol C will
forward *all* latencies from B to A. As a matter of fact, slowing down
the peer in a protocol C setup may hurt you *more* than doing it to the
primary (but don't quote me on that ;-)
