Isn't there also an issue where, if a file is open on a replicated 
GlusterFS, the process accessing the file will get an error if the node 
it had open goes down (even though there's a replica available)? Or is 
there already a way around that or in the works?

If this is an issue, then a virtual machine open from an image on a 
replicated GlusterFS would think it lost its filesystem and freak out, and 
you'd have to kill and restart the virtual machine.
