+Like Perl mogstored(1), cmogstored writes "devNNN/usage" files for
+mogilefsd(1) instances to monitor disk space utilization.
+As of cmogstored 1.7, this information is stored in-memory in case the
+device becomes too full to write the usage file.  Users may choose to
+make usage files unwritable (via "chmod 000") to reduce disk wear on
+otherwise read-mostly devices.
+As of cmogstored 1.8, the in-memory representation of these usage files
+is updated by PUT and DELETE HTTP requests in case write traffic is too
+high for periodic (10s) updates.
