Not quite.  We still have the shared memory segment for meter data, requiring 
that caed(8) and RDAirPlay be on the same system.

The replication system is intended for doing things like synchronizing two 
audio stores (perhaps remotely located via Internet), at least one of which 
is a Rivendell system.  At present, there is just one replicator implemented 
(used for interfacing with X-Digital's satellite copy-replacement system), 
but the generic hooks now exist in the code to implement pretty much any 
replication scheme with a minimum of effort (including Rivendell-to-Rivendell 
replication, handy for things like maintaining a hot-standby system at a 
transmitter site in case of a catastrophic outage at the studio).
