Completely true.  However, if you're after raw speed, that's an
option.  If you manage your AFS  infrastructure with something like
Russ's volume database, you can bypass the vlserver and query that
database.  Alternatively, after doing the diff, you can then query the
vldb for the volumes you have offline.

There are definitely trade-offs involved.  Thanks for making sure
people are aware of that one.
