Wouldn't it make more sense to introduce configuration vars with some filled
by querying system parameters?
No. That would require a lot of platform-dependent system knowledge and it's
not even needed here.
Hmm..better not re-invent configuration mgmt systems though...
The particular config could be implemented just by adding a serverID keyword
to the syncrepl config clause. Then that particular consumer instance would
only activate if the current server matches the specified serverID(s).
