Hmm. I thought over the idea of introducing a new storage pool type 
PLOOP and I'm not sure that it is good. Actually it makes existing 
storage pools like Directory unusable for ploop format without any 
strong reason. Thus, I would tend to ask you to change the approach of 
introducing a new pool storage type to using existing ones.
