For the moment you still cannot grow or shrink volume groups,
so as soon as you want to change replication of a volume. you have to
recreate it.

Jan is working on removing that limitation but I would not suggest holding
your breath.

One and very welcome solution would be if you hack together a script
that would collect acl's from a Coda subtree, pack them together with the
files, say in a tar archive, and be able to unpack and restore the
files and the acls of course. The best if it would work with piped
archives, too.

It should not be too hard, just nobody seems to have taken on this task.
