What is done with other large distributed database technologies? What
to do after partitioning is a requirements problem for any replicating
store, not just mnesia.

We know there is no single solution - it depends on the application
(as Lennart pointed out when he was consulting here). Not being a DB
expert, I wonder how the issue is handled with other replicating
databases.
