[Gluster-devel] Multicast Support?

I'm working on putting a WAN AFR setup at the moment, and it occurs to me
that the point-to-point nature of client-to-multiple-servers replication is
extremely inefficient. For example, if I have 4 nodes, that means that
every write has to be done 3 times over the WAN to 3 different remote

So, it occurs to me that having multicast support would be very useful
because the writes would be sent out of the local network pipe once and
replicated further up the routing chain.

Is there any support for this planned in the reasonably near future?
