The strings command?  ;-)

CTDB doesn't have an equivalent.  I'll add it to my list of things to
do... but if you get it done first then I'd be grateful!  ;-)

The online CTDB documentation is woefully out of date.  I'm planning to
update the CTDB documentation in the wiki to be well structured and
correct. We will then remove most of the online documentation and point
to the wiki.  No use maintaining it twice...
