It does not - ROMA does only support the "map" call as thats the only
one needed for t at h.

Extending ROMA to support the other calls (read-only) should be quite
easy.

API 0.7 should contain a "referral" as LDAP does - So a client could
connect to a cluster of read-only copies and once you write to it you
get a referral to the master database. Synchronization is a big issue
here but it should be a good point for scalability ...
