Now that one's OK, if you can make sure you're the only process  
writing to that specific device.
How would the guys do that?

I think they should rely on what the filesystem is telling them on  
the particular operation.

Even if they do the check for space on every chunk/block they touch,  
that would be pretty inefficient on any network file system.
Thus that one is not AFS's fault ;-)
