Couple of very small points that would be really useful; 

a. Could mount.glusterfs be made to take a list of target hosts rather than just one? 
(so a machine could successfully mount a glusterfs so long as "a" valid node was available, rather than a specific node?) 

b. Being able to specify the size of an IO cache (and other parameters?) at mount time would be really useful for tuning .. 
(at the moment it seems to require a glusterfsd restart which typically involves (for me) 10's of Gb's of file transfer) 

Just a thought .. :) 

Happy new year!
