So I can choose other RVM sizes than those mentioned in the documenation?

  "What is the size of you data partition (or file) [22M,44M, 90M, 130M]:"

Is a RVM bound to the root volume (/coda) or to volumes below the root volume?

Another clause in the documentation is somehow frightening: "This data is 
stored in an RVM data file which is mapped into memory upon startup". What 
does it mean? Do I need as much virtual memory as the RVM file/partition 

Sorry for asking all those questions, but for a coda beginner its not easy to 
figure all these things out. There is a FAQ section about the RVM, but it 
seems to be outdated (max. recommended RVM size is 330 MB).
