Seems that it should not be too hard to add that to the stochastic load balancer.
We could add a spaceCost or something.

You can extend the default balancer and assign the regions based on
that.But at the end, the replicated blocks might still go all over the
cluster and your "small" nodes are going to be full and will not be able to
get anymore writes even for the regions they are supposed to get.

I'm not sure there is a good solution for what you are looking for :(

I build my own balancer but because of differences in the CPUs, not because
of differences of the storage space...
