I'm not confident with this idea of "first" server. Maybe some users
will be interested in the way of replicate files over smaller disk.

the gluster client should be aware of all bricks status.

But you're right, maybe it's should not be an info to show on the df
command, but it would sure be useful to have it on the client to avoid
the user to connect every bricks to retrieve the status of each of them.
