Even a more self tuning OpenAFS is going to need to be...tunable to better suit specific environments.  It's the nature of complex systems.

The long term direction is absolutely to make things more self-tuning.
Getting there is going to take a long time.  In the meantime we have
been asked to accept patches which take some of the existing hard coded
configuration parameters and provide alternates.  I do not wish to us
replace one set of hard coded configuration with another.  Especially
when I know that more than one organization has internally patched those
values to better tune the AFS servers for their environment.
