Update to Murder docs (D69) and question on style.

Hi Nic,

Would love it if you wanted to write up murderous replication.

And hey, failover too, in the non-murdery/murdery replication scenarios.

I'm sure there's more than one way to implement it, but it would be
great to have a starting point in the docs.

    well enough...  Doesn't it? ;-)
    I can write this up, I just wasn't sure if it was still needed.  I
    put a big ol' Note: in the replication page saying:
>> Important

          environment, replicas must *not* be configured to invoke
          ctl_mboxlist(8)[2] on startup (pushing the local mailbox
          list to the *Mupdate Master*). This may only be done on the
          Master instance.

    write up a brief set of instructions about this very topic not that
    long ago (IIRC) for user mailing list.  I figured I could start
    with that.
