It'll work very nicely. The files are:
attachments/ha/sh/hash-guid, which is a hard link to:
So it's always a hard link under a child hashes/ directory. The
attachments/* or attachments/*/* directories can point to any number of
different mount points. Currently it's hard coded to two directory
levels, allowing max. 65536 different dirs/mount points. I don't know if
I should bother making this configurable.
