5. coda almost works well enough, and if you're inclined to play with it
you might find it satisfactory.  I have been using coda for 10 years and
not had any meltdowns from which I could not recover.  It's basically
AFS with disconnected writes that get reintegrated later.

   I don't know enough to comment on suitability, but worth looking at.
