Understood. Thanks Max, I did not realize you were also speaking about Xen,
I thought you meant to find an arbitrary non-virtual disk replacement
strategy ("start to dismiss old disk").
We do speak to the Xen team every once in a while, but while there is
interest in adding Ceph support on their side, I think we are somewhat down
