  Remember early when I asked about being able to have all bricks update 
and read from any client using AFR?  Well of course this seems to work 
fine in my small limited tests.  Would this work well enough that you 
could place a database on the bricks and have it be consistent no matter 
which brick was being accessed by clients?  If so, then I would still 
have to work out details of how to snapshot backups (probably will use 
LVM) and how to control and administer the db but it seems like it could 
be an alternative to other database replication methods.  Right now 
these require that you find a way to split the reads and writes between 
masters and slaves.  I would like to get away from having to deal with 
that requirement and perhaps glusterfs could help here.
