Indeed, the reason we at OSC are interested in CODA at all is to have
a shared scratch space for a cluster of machines.  In our case, we're
running a Beowulf cluster, and some sort of fast, shared scratch area
(not necessarily /tmp, but something more like $TMPDIR in NQS across
several nodes) would make the lives of both us (the admins) and the
users much easier.
