You just create multiple volumes, and use cfs mkm to mount them into
a single namespace.

    mountpoint       volume       servergroup
    ----------       ------       -----------
    /coda         -> coda.root    SCM,server1
    /coda/usr     -> coda.usr     server1,server2
    /coda/usr/me  ->  server1
    /coda/usr/you -> server2

I don't see why different parts of one volume should be stored on
different servers.
