Hi Mike,

I have similar requirements for my mail server setup but for about 50 
users, instead of thousands.

Unfortunately my requirements for large files (possibly greater than 
2gb) is a show stopper for my purposes and Coda.  Also the fact that the 
entire file needs to be transferred to the coda client before you can 
read the first byte is a problem for me.  But for smaller files, (or if 
you're replicating to each client (like a server cluster) for larger 
files) that might not be a problem for you.

This is basically a "me too".  I haven't setup coda, and I'm evaluating 
OpenAFS for my purposes but the OpenAFS semantics of "only one instance 
of a replicated volume is read/write and the rest are read-only" doesn't 
sound good for the hot-failover I want on my servers... :-/
