Hi Horacio,
CLI also coordinates with elastic volume manager. You will lose the ability
to perform online volume management operations. Another main reason for
abstraction is to avoid untested combinations. It is possible to use the
auto-generated volume spec files (from /etc/gluster dir) and start
glusterfsd manually. My strong recommendation is to integrate pupper/chef
with Gluster CLI. Integration with CLI takes fewer lines of code than manual
vol spec approach. What trouble did you run in to?  I think it makes sense
for us to document Gluster / Puppet integration and provide examples.

RAID10 like is simply distributed volume with replica count = 2.
