So many users cried for this feature (to provide not just horizontal 
scalability with murder, but to have redundant backends which can hold 
each others replicas too) that I wonder: if it's so important to us, the 
cyrus users, why don't we collect some money and pass it to the developers?

Maybe it could help to make the implementation real, and the developers 
have already demonstrated that they can design and code such things.
