[Gluster-devel] Bricks as first-class objects

1 - Im no gluster expert but - moving blocks on to a high performance
machine could be really good for long running mapreduce jobs wherein there
are large amounts of slow disks in a cluster.

2 - I assume you would rather discourage people from custom coding the
brick logic - since its the volume level of abstraction that you want
people normally to work from - right... ?

3 - Are there optimizations that happen in the way the gluster fuse mounts
work, wherein volumes sort of assume that the bricks aren't moving around
beneath them.?
