  There was an implementation of it in 0.1 or 0.2, but it was removed
because is caused a great many problems in the server core.

  Yes.  The suggestion now is to use "radrelay".  It's more work, but it
does the same thing.

  I *think* in 2.0 we can get radrelay to duplicate the functionality of
Replicate-To-Realm without too much effort, but I'll have to spend some
more time looking into it.
