CLONE PREPARE - Prepare for cloning a node.

Prepares for cloning a specified subscriber node.
This duplicates the ‘provider’ node's configuration under a new
node ID in preparation for the node to be copied via standard database tools.
Note that in order that we be certain that this new node be consistent with all
nodes, it is important to issue a SYNC event against every node aside from the
provider and wait to start copying the provider database at least until all
those SYNC events have been confirmed by the provider. Otherwise, it is
possible for the clone to miss some events.
clone prepare (id = 33, provider = 22, comment='Clone 33');
Slonik will wait until the node being cloned (the provider) is caught up with
all other nodes before submitting the clone prepare command
This command was introduced in Slony-I 2.0.
