I see.

Concerning the 'filesystem', a DL->BL session will lock one volume/network for
itself.  A DL->DL->BL session (as Jarl thought up) would require the two DL's
to be synchronized somehow.  Either they will have to be initialized (started)
together, or one DL will have to update itself to the current state of the
other DL.
