You don't have to worry about that. I think I was the one who committed
the original code to allow remote frontends to read via nfs rather than
streaming, because from day 1 of using Myth (back in the 0.7 days), I have
used a separate NFS server for my main backend storage. Later I added the
GetPlaybackURL() method to standardize how "players" determined how to
access the file.
I'm not sure what parts of this patch I'll use or even be able to use, but
I wanted to snag the ticket since some of it is irrelevant with the current
Storage Groups code I'm testing on my production systems right now.
