[Gluster-devel] Qemu glusterfs, exposing complete bricks instead of individual images as shared storage to VM's ?

I'm using glusterfs for quite some time on my server for shared-storage to VM's.
At the moment this had to go over tcp/ip bridge between host and guests, so
i was interested in the option to use glusterfs directly with qemu. But it seems it
only supports to expose individual images files that reside on a glusterfs brick.

Would it be possible to extend this and make a complete brick available as disk to qemu as shared storage ?
(so multiple vm's and the host can share this same storage space)
