I think ggated and gmirror won't satisfy you because I'd like to call
ggated experimental. Furthermore it is not intended for those tasks,
because it is kept very simple. A better scenario for the current
implementation of ggated is to mount a remote CD filesystem locally.
If you really need DRBD then stay with DRDB and linux.
