Thanks Erick – 
I used the MOVEREPLICA command to shuffle them around, but like you mentioned, I had to look
up nodes names and such.
I’m on the same page; drag-n-drop replica organization.

I was looking at the newest section in the admin-ui  “Cloud > Nodes”
Maybe we could add the drag-n-drop functionality to that last column, where the replicas are
listed by node. I think we have all the data required in that view to construct a MOVEREPLICA
