AFAIK, if you run multiple mirrored servers, you probably can 
even live w/o RAID. If one system fails, another one jumps in.

But I didn't test this yet. Probably depends on Coda's behaviour
on broken storage. 

So the big question is: what happens if the an underlying FS fails ?
Does Coda properly detect this and drive to some clean state
(ie. take an damaged volume offline and kick clients to the 
next server ?)
