Since I have yet to set up my first Coda server (I'm currently stuck  
doing something more mundane) I can't even begin to answer that  
question, but Coda is never far from my mind. 1 Mbps sounds like my  
ADSL upload bandwidth, which is still an unfortunate reality for many  
individuals and small businesses. There's not much to do about this,  
but AFAIK the best way to deal with it is like rsync. Does Coda work  
like rsync for its replication, or does it copy entire files? I know  
OpenAFS doesn't have rsync-like replication, but it's scheduled to get  
it some time next year.
