Agree with you. We need to aim for unlimited scale before reality hits 
us :).

Makes me wonder what would be a typical deployment scenario - would we 
have a single volume that spans around 10K nodes? If yes, what are the 
scalability problems that we foresee? DHT's directory spread is on the 
top of my mind. Would the directory spread count option be good enough 
to address this?
