Not currently, this will probably be added fairly soon though (the admin 
interface isn't finished yet). 

However, for the particular example you give, there are other alternatives - 
you can set up a different source (at a different mountpoint), and move all 
the clients from the old source to the new one. That's not ideal, obviously, 
since it doesn't deal with new clients connecting.
