coda in 'production' systems?

First, may I say that coda looks really good, and thanks to all those
who have written it (and are still working on it).

I run a cluster of linux boxes for a research group in a physics
department and I'm trying to work out whether we should be using
coda rather than NFS. It certainly looks good but I'm unable to
find anybody else who is using it for 'work' systems.

My users are computational physicists who essentially spend their
whole day logged in and if the system is down they can't do an awful
lot. (On the other hand, we're not trying to run a bank or a
mission-critical database.) NFS hasn't given us many problems that
can't be fixed by a reboot.

So, my question is, are there many people out there who are using coda
for their work systems?
