you are free to add error checking.  i dont make misteaks so i dont
bother with error checking.

to be honest, i usually run the script in two passes.  doing the rw
first, and later run it with the -ro flag.

never considered that since we dont have a single readonly for any
volumes.  if i have a readonly, i have more than one site.

>- in general, handling RW/RO pairs is best handled separately

you could just change the order a bit.  it should zap the old readonly
to force the old users of the readonly to the new readonly to get them
off the sever asap.
