PostgreSQL can cluster, you just have to write your own remote 
connectivity functions and triggers to do the replication exactly how 
you want it. It's much more flexible and powerful, although as you say, 
clustering/replication isn't built in.

Note, however, that I said "cluster file system", not a database cluster.
