What would happen if the mounted drive was not online?  In other
words, if I have an extra 100 gigs on my windows machine, have that
drive mounted on my backend (which is also my frontend), and then add
that path to the default storage group (/win2/myth), and I decide to
turn off my windows machine when myth is not writing to it, will it be
smart enough to realize that the drive is not accessible and only try
to write recordings to the local path (/video/recordings) instead of
the now-non-accessible CIFS mounted path?  Or am I just playing with
fire here?
