Thanks!  That was very helpful.

Lingering questions: what happens when any of these pieces go down? 
Suppose the database server (or the entire database cluster) erupts in 
flames, what happens to the data being stored in mogilefs?  Is there a 
way to recover?  (Of course one would likely have bigger problems if 
that happened, but I'm curious)  What sort of configurations are typical 
for the trackers and storage nodes?  Are they often running on the same 
boxes or what?
