I did the investigating and determined that there was no particular 
reason not to try this.  I also read about posix locking with gluster, 
and while it is supposed to be posix-compliant and I found a few people 
who had also used this on their system.

Since enabling it, we have had no issues, things have been working as 
advertised and expected.  I also reverted back to 10.internal, and it 
seems to be working happily now, not sure why, but good news nonetheless.

Wanted to say thanks for your help, much appreciated...
