Ok, i messed up the whole thing inside my poor head :)

So the only way for doing replication is actually having the webservers as
coda clients?
If i've not misunderstood again, this means that  the replication is not
full, but happens only on the data hoarded
by the clients... so if the server goes down and a web user requests a file
which had not been hoarded,
the webserver cannot serve it to him...and this is not very good for
websites :(
May i ask you an advice on a possible real-time solution? (no rsync or

Anyway, thanks for the answer, you were way too kind. I deserved to be
flamed really :)
