Hi Oliver,
yes, i thought that was the case, but is it intended to support distributed
storage? For example, I have 4 storage boxes with 4 TB each, "clustered". Say
we keep duplicate copies of all data. When I access , say,
hammer://mycluster/storage , i'd expect 'storage' to be 8 TB .

explain :) I should probably start trailing Draco too ;)
