Exactly, and I want the user I/O for the VM's to go over the same network
as the internal traffic (higher capacity), this can of course be solved with
separate gluster volumes (which might be necessary since I might need different
translators and access rights for different clients). Might well be that this 
is better handled with specific routing entries on the servers (not very many, so 
its manageable).
