Man, that's a lot of disk. Just a wild idea I'm curious about: anybody
ever tried exporting disks from nodes via the nbd (network block device)
and assembling a huge raid0 (stripping) with the nbd's on the front end?
This might make a very fast disk even with IDE disks and traffic through
the network. This would be sort of a funny way to use a cluster...
