After reading through the documentation related to Gluster 3, Fuse, and 
the (new'ish) Booster option, i find myself a little bit cloudy on 
exactly what their respective relationships are - in particular, how 
Booster fits into the picture.

Is Booster a replacement for Fuse ?  The documentation - especially the 
section entitled « Configuring Booster to Use Alone » - would seem to 
suggest this is the case.

If this is true, is Fuse still required for client operations ?  Server 
operations ?  If yes, what is the relationship of Fuse to Booster ?  If 
no, why are we bothering with Fuse at all, given the performance 
problems and such ?

Thank you for your feedback.
