Okay, I can see how that might turn out unweildy. Either way, a Varnish
configuration must exist on every node anyway, if not for any other
purpose than to know the IP address of the managment node.

The reason I asked was to see if we might need storage commands in the
Varnish Configuration Language.

if (storage.freespace < 200MB){
   if (obj.size > 200MB){
} is updated some, and I put some notes under
the Object table.
