Replication question

when we switch we comment out the sync_server line on the replica to  
make sure it won't listen.

When it comes to get the master up to speed, then we reverse the roles.

We also generate a file with all our usernames in it and feed it to  
sync_client on the replica and that way it will go through every user  
and make sure they get re-synced.
