Hi. Can you explain why it wouldn't make any sense please? I have a GFS 
filesystem mounted over 100Mb iSCSI (I'm not in a position to upgrade 
the network speed at this time, but will in future). It's read heavy. 
Particular files will be hit very regularly. I just thought it would be 
nice if those files could be cached locally rather than repeatedly 
pulling them over the network...?
