(big snip)

i'd admittedly neither considered this approach, nor even heard of
ENBD! so, something new/interesting ...

reading here, http://www.it.uc3m.es/ptb/nbd/, iiuc, this lends itself
to implementation on a separate box, no?

or, are you suggesting deploying an NBD server in/as a DomU?

thanks for the idea(s)!  your well written comment does a nice job of
intro as to capability; understanding differences wrt
NFS/OpenFiler/other ntwk storage requires some add'l reading on my
part ...
