I had not thought of that, but that would be killer.. although that would be 
multi-master which I think would be really difficult to implement.. :-(

It is not that people dont want.. it is that some times they can't.
For example where I work we are keeping a close eye on Gluster, but it 
currently does not work in FreeBSD. Some of the other distrbibuted 
filesystems are either not as mature in FreeBSD or are non existent.
