    No, its a lot more complex then that.  There are three basic issues:

    * Redundancy in a heavily distributed environment

    * Transactional Consistency.

Hm, I wonder how plan9 solved these issues? AFAIK they have at least a
snapshots capable fs (long before zfs) and since their scope also is a
distributed environment, it may be a good idea to take a look and
maybe borrow some ideas?
But I'm really no expert here, so anybody with a clue is invited to
comment on that. ;)
