Perhaps I should clearify that a little bit.

In some special cases, AFS can do that too. But it requires that those
Data is strictly read-only.

This read-only data has to be created from read-write data (this is
called "release" in AFS-speak). This process takes some time, so it is
neither recommended nor feasible to do that release in very short
