Someone recently posted a patch (to openafs-devel) about shadow volumes.
What exactly are shadow volumes?  When and why would I want to use them?

I found no mention of them in the IBM documentation, on the AFSLore wiki
or anything more than just the name itself mentioned in the openafs-info

Any additional info would be appreciated!  Thanks!
