Here's what I'm thinking:

 - No data paths are hard-coded except for /etc/ceph/*.conf

 - We initially mount osd volumes in some temporary location (say, 

 - We identify the oid, cluster uuid, etc., and determine where to mount 
   it with

	ceph-osd --cluster $cluster -i $id --show-config-value osd_data

   This will normally give you the default, unless the conf file specified 
   something else.

 - Normal people get a default of /var/lib/ceph/$type/$id

 - Multicluster crazies put

		osd data = /var/lib/ceph/$type/$cluster-$id
		osd journal = /var/lib/ceph/$type/$cluster-$id/journal
		mon data = /var/lib/ceph/$type/$cluster-$id

   (or whatever) in /etc/ceph/$cluster.conf and get something else.

Code paths are identical, data flow is identical.  We get a simple general 
case, without closing the door on multicluster configurations, which vary 
only by the config value that is easily adjusted on a per-cluster basis...
