Compare with Rancher's local path provisioner
Rancher has developed: https://github.com/rancher/local-path-provisioner/
If this is the same thing as we're developing here, maybe it makes sense to stop maintaining this and move towards their product. But at first we need to make a comparison and see if there's really no functional difference. We could also try setting up an OAS cluster with the local path provisioner as the default storageClass and see what happens.
