Imagine a case where there is 2 clients changing the same AFR file.

If each client replay its log without synchronizinq with the
other client the final file may be not in the same state on A and B
after the replay.

My 2 cents.

PS : To speed up AFS synchronisation, I prefer the idea of
      a 'split' translator that take apart big files in chunks :
      So AFR synchronize only the modified chunk.
      By the way, an 'unsplit' translator may be needed at the top
      (The 'unsplit' translator may be useful to store files bigger
      than the maximum size allowed by the file system)
