Or even simpler, instead of actually copying the files we could just copy in the reference files and let the usual compactions take care of the reference files.
That will already be taken care of in trunk. The favored nodes will
assign preference to data nodes. Then since we queue compactions for
anything with reference files everything should be created on the
local server and two others. Then if the balancer needs to it should
have two other targets where most things are data local.
