I think that's a bad idea personally. UNIX design philosopy is to split
up systems into small components that connect together. The kernel is
good at aggregating storage (RAID, LVM etc) so don't replicate that in
the application.

I don't really understand why you wouldn't just put enough disk space in
the backend. Disk is cheap.
