The existing syntax in the gluster CLI for creating arbiter volumes is
`gluster volume create <volname> replica 3 arbiter 1 <list of bricks>` .
It means (or at least intended to mean) that out of the 3 bricks, 1
brick is the arbiter.
There has been some feedback while implementing arbiter support in
glusterd2 for glusterfs-4.0 that we should change this to `replica 2
arbiter 1` , meaning that there are 2 replica (data) bricks and the 3rd
one is the arbiter (which only holds meta data).
See  for some discussions. What does everyone feel is more user
friendly and intuitive?
