Are there any Linux users out there using the likes of RAID'ed-NBD, CODA or
Intermezzo for a similar effect?

The NBD (network block device) looks interesting, it allows you to mount a
remote raw partition - so you can effectively RAID over the network.
Supports transaction logs too (which would be necessary in a rsync-style role)
