I know this is controversial, but is it time to remove replication_mode 
and friends from pgpool ?

master_slave_mode has been around for a while, and by removing 
replication_mode from the configuration it will force people to setup 
streaming or logical replication instead.

This will hopefully lead to fewer data corruption cases, since all 
community supported PostgreSQL versions has streaming replication now.

I would be willing to write a patch for this, or at least a patch that 
let people know to look at master_slave_mode instead.

This is of course for pgpool-4.

Feedback most welcome.

Best regards,
