In-place volume type conversion

Dmitry Antipov
Is it technically possible/feasible to implement an in-place volume conversion,
at least for volumes with the same number of bricks (say, from 'replica 3' to
'disperse 3')? If so, any thoughts on initial steps?

The backend layouts for replicate and disperse are different. Hence it is not recommended to try out an in-place volume conversion for these types.
