I agree.  I think sync_client should process any pending log-* in the  
sync directory when it's later restarted.  (Or at least have an  
option to do that.)

Do people run sync_client in the SERVICES section rather than START?   
The install-replication docs indicate to put it in START.  If my  
replica goes away for a little while, sync_client exits and then I  
have to restart it manually and then process any pending logs.  Would  
be nice if it just started automatically and picked up where it left
