I can imagine a use of this for everything that uses the static or xml
dumps, as well as unpacking or packing large files. Working with large
files over NFS sucks *ss.

A feature we may provide to users in the future is servers with fast local (not
NFS) storage for use by tools. This would be something like user-store, except
per-server. This storage would be redundant (RAID), but not backed up.
If anyone feels like they may make use of this, it would be useful to know
exactly how you plan to use it, e.g. how much storage you would need and for
how long, as well as the sort of tasks it would be used for.
