In that config the client is only mounting from one server 
(roundrobin.gluster.local).  Seems that a failure would be user 
impacting, especially if roundrobin.gluster.local gave me the failed 
server's address again.

Do I just need to wait for the High Availability Translator or can the 
client mount mailspool from two servers?
