Gluster Filesystem Update: as i've progressed into expanding the storage cluster (from 3 to 4 hosts, with another 4 on deck) - I expanded and rebalanced lastnight.
the entire process took about 8 hours to complete, and the stats are pretty interesting to look at.
End result: still happy, not overly so, but happy enough :)
