Yes, we can do it. the existing semantics need some changes because of the
attach tier command (gluster volume tier <VOLNAME> attach <BRICK>...) the
parsing has to be changed to accommodate the attach tier command. if used as I
mentioned then we can use the functions of attach tier generic for adding brick
also. Other thing with using args is. it needs changes to support the keywords
like replica <count> also. so when we try to make a generic function for add
brick on tiered volume and attach tier these keywords like replica <count> and
tier-type <hot/cold> will need more changes.
So i feel its better to have a separate command instead of the args.
If i have been missing any pros from having the args let me know.
