Coda File System

CODA starting questions

I currently locked over the network-file-system possibilities I have
under Linux. (I have too many NFS problems here ...) We wounld use the
NFS replacement to serve our development sources and home directories ...

As alternative I find CODA quite promissing. But I found problems reading
through the docu.

The introduction about coda says:
..., Venus fetches the entire file from the servers, ...

Err? I have some multi-track wave files (> 2 GB of course), RockLinux tars
(< 1GB) and ISOs (600MB) lying around ... . So Code will not be able to serve
this files? Also when I create a 4GB cache it would be extremly slow to copy
the whole file over a 100MBit ethernet when a appication calls open (). Coda
is not able to serve the data on-the-fly (for such files only ...) ??

In one docu I found that the cache shouldn't be larger than ~300MB. Is this
the latest info? Especially for the larger files (mentioned above) and hording
on my laptop this would not be that cool ...
