Correct -- the default HierarchicalObjectStore always writes new files to
the first ObjectStore but can read through to any of them.  Probably worth
noting that, with this base implementation (that could easily be extended
to do whatever you'd prefer), when the first objectstore gets full it still
won't attempt to write to the second.

I do believe we're using it, but Nate would be better able to comment on
the actual performance gain we see.
