This might be an option.
Or you do it like we did (so experience is there).
We did a MySQL multi-master ring replication (which mysql says it's not 
possible ;-))

Basically we have 3 TYPO3 installs that share their FE Users, News and 
some other utility tables on database level.

Currently the only "drawback" is that we cannot use more than 10 servers 
(but I consider this "ok" in our situation).

does this help?
