First of all thanks for your input.  I agree with your above statement,
it is what I told them.  The Linux boxes don't send or receive any type
of replication requests, so it shouldn't matter.

Agreed again, I'm just trying to make sure what I'm telling them is in
line with how it actually works.  If it comes down to it, it might be a
pissing contest between them making me prove it will work and have no
problems, and me telling them to prove it will have problems.
