I have been thinking about this too and I was kind of interested in
knowing about the usage on a metered line. It seems like my coda
client keeps my ISDN line up all the time. Is there any reason for
this? Would the same thing happen to if I put a coda server here? 

It would be fine if it sat around not keeping the line up and then the
moment that it gets a request for a file, it goes back to the main
server for that volume and checks that the file is the same.
