I suggest skimming the technical papers in the documentation section
on the home page.  They look pretty fearsome; I didn't really
understand the problems they were trying to solve.  But knowing that
there are problems, and knowing that there are tradeoffs, somehow
helps in remembering how Coda is different from other file system
implementations, and in understanding why some things work well on
Coda and others don't.
