We've been using Mogilefs for a long time now and it's been working out 
great! (the "new" drain/rebalance stuff is awesome!). Quick question for 
anybody who has tried this.

We are migrating datacenters and I was wondering if it would be possible 
to "migrate" disks. For example:

* mark dev1 as down
* copy (or physically move) the dev1 disk to the other datacenter.
* change the host that dev1 is on (devices table)
* mark dev1 as up?

Any experience or input would be appreciated. Thanks!
