No war to start:) I had always top posted as a kid before I started using
usenet and mailing lists. I was corrected and saw it was logical, also the
ways where in place long before I came along but they do make sense.

A few times I gave up helping as following along in a thread was too hard.
Not worth my effort...

Sure, so long as you know the use case and scenarios etc. Often we see
people doing things like exporting an ext formatted block dev w/ an iscsi
target to multiple clients, so maybe the knee-jerk reaction with an odd
comparo like that is an attempt to "inform". If that _actual_ comparison
is of value to you, so be it...

Most of us would compare a cluster to a cluster, or an apple to an apple:)
I suppose you could phrase the question: "I need to export data, every
option is possible, I can cluster, or not, give me #'s" but we digress...
