Another solution (Which I'm not sure how to achieve) would be to switch All
reads/writes to the master upon is_admin() & SQL is Update/insert, That way
you retain as many reads to the slaves as possible, but once the wp-admin
decides to make a write, all future reads come from the only source that is
guarantee'd to be uptodate.
