  as far as I recall, Coda servers are endian-dependent, in the sence that
  you cannot mix different-endianness servers in the same volume replication
  group. May be it is still possible to use them in the same realm,
  while avoiding volume replication between them.

  (Servers send log information to each other, and it is pretty much in its
  internal representation)

Wow - I had no idea!  Thanks - and I'll be careful when I start up
sparc servers.
Just wait until 64-bit coda!   And my port of coda to the PDP-11/70,
which I expect to be done by November, but it's a little tricky
fitting it - I had to extend the number of overlays for segment
register 5 to 128, up from the usual 8.
