RVM is the persistence system that Coda uses for metadata. The disadvantage of
the system is that the size of the metadata is severely limited because it is
mapped into virtual memory - therefore, Coda doesn't (yet) support very large
filesystems like AFS does (it is the main reason that I didn't look further
into Coda).
