Port Request: gluster

I'm going to start testing it in a pre-production environment.  It seems
so straightforward, integrates with ZFS, it has simple configuration
files, all around, I'm hoping that it garners more
clustering/replication for FreeBSD.  Many of the other solutions are
quite tedious and setup complexity is quite annoying.

This looks like a very interesting project. I might be able to take  
some time
over the weekend and create a port for this.

Out of curiosity, have you been using it in production? If so, can you  
describe your setup
and your experience with it?
