Ugh, you're right.  Just double checked, and I was mis-remembering
a screenshot from Niels recent Gluster talk. :(

Looks like the early stages GlusterFlow project is about the
only way to get the info atm... and it's not exactly trivial
to set up.

The whole step of "insert translator into .vol file" can
apparently be simplified greatly.  Jeff mentioned a while ago
there is a .py script (or similar) for modifying .vol files
through a Gluster filter.  I haven't yet looked into it, but
it sounds like it would make this step pretty much trivial.

Not sure if that really helps you atm though. ;)
