Suggestions for rsync

Hi, I have 2 Suggestion for rsync. 1)You should have a feature that
enables rsync to be able to manage a cluster of web servers with load
balancers, so if a person has 100 web servers connected together and
running them as a cluster with load balancers, rsync will mount all the
hard-drives of the 100 web servers together so they appear as 1 big hard
drive. So when a person accesses their website by going to their url
like, cpanel or any other control panel will display
all the hard drives as one big hard drive, so when a user uploads a
file, rsync will make it automatically be available on all 100 server's
hard drives. This would be great for programmers because they won't have
to code their scripts to work in a cluster environment because all hard
drives will appear as one. rsync should also work with databases like
mysql so if a person installs mysql on the 1 big hard drive, rsync would
automatically install it on all of the 100 server's hard drives, and if
anything is added into the mysql database or changed, rsync will do this
instantly. If a person installed PHP or PERL or PYTHON etc onto the 1 big
hard drive, rsync would automatically install it on all 100 server hard
drives. 2)Rsync should have a feature where a person installs rsync on
their server, and then website visitors download a new desktop version of
rsync and type in settings that the main server owner gives them and run
this file on their home pc and their internet connection becomes part of
the main server so their pc hard drive and cpu become part of the main
server so when people access the website, some data will be downloaded
from the main server, and some from the website visitors who downloaded
and are running the app. There should be a bandwidth limiter so users can
choose to share either 1Kbps, 56Kbps,128Kbps,1Mbps,10Mbps. Can you pass
my suggestions onto the appropriate person/s? Thanks
