Ah, thank you for correcting me on this.

I read that HyperDB **support** replication, and assumed that it
**does** replication. My mistake.

Anyway, I'm seeing more and more of my clients closing to overload
their server. Nice to see that so many people are enjoying success
with help from Wordpress.
