Yes, but it won't be able to completely eliminate write-disconnected
operation. A conflicting 'store' from 2 different client will kick the
second writer into write-disconnected mode and turn the object into a
local-global conflict on the first reintegration attempt. Also, when
all servers become unavailable for some reason, the client will start
logging updates. For all other cases 'cfs strong' avoids going into
write-disconnected mode due to (assumed) low bandwidth connectivity.
